Top tips for SMEs to stay safe online

As part of National Cyber Security Awareness Week, Symantec recommends the following tips to help SMEs stay safe online:

  • Develop a security and data protection plan that defines the procedures, guidelines and practices for securing and managing your information. Implementing a comprehensive and integrated security solution that reduces spam, is more than just antivirus technology and will safeguard the business from external threats, internal threats and information loss.
  • Educate staff to avoid clicking on suspicious links in email, IM messages or on social networking sites.
  • Use strong passwords that have at least eight characters and combine alphanumeric and special characters.
  • Combine security and backup and recovery software technologies to deliver complete information protection and keep desktops, servers and applications running smoothly in case of disruption.
