Cyber Security

Protect Business Data With Cyber Security

Cyber threats have evolved significantly in the past decade, and protecting your business’s network from cyber attacks should be a top priority.

Network Security Tips

High Touch Technologies has over 30 years’ experience in technology solutions for businesses of all sizes. We offer free assessments to help you understand where your business may be exposed, and how we can help. Your summary report includes our concerns and recommendations for your servers, network security, software, email, data backup and recovery, and much more.

Firewalls and anti-virus will only take your business so far when it comes to protecting yourself from the threat of cyber-attacks and hackers. Even with these controls in place, simple human error and bad judgement can take down your entire system.


“Cyber criminals become more savvy by the day – evidenced by the fact that over 70% of attacks on corporate networks last year would not have been prevented by traditional firewall technology. Ransomware attacks specifically are on the rise – up from 3.8 million in 2015 to 638 million in 2016.”

Network Security Tips

Change your passwords

123ABC is still all too common, and incredibly easy to break. Requiring longer passwords and requiring that they be changed at certain intervals is an easy safeguard for your system. You would also be surprised how many employees keep passwords on notepads and sticky notes at their workstations – a practice that immediately opens you up to threats.

Be mindful of personal smart phones

If you allow employees to plug their personal phones into their computer, even just to charge them, you open your network up to any virus that may be on their individual device. By plugging the phone into the computer (as opposed to a wall jack), it is by default connected to your system and able to access your network.

Check your Wi-Fi

Everyone loves Wi-Fi! Your employees need it; guests to your place of business demand it. However, if these networks are not kept separate, it can put your data at risk. This does not just mean a “guest” network and a password-protected network for employees. You must logically or physically segment the two networks.

Limit access

No employee needs access to your entire network – and even your network administrator should have an alternate user login for when they are not acting in an administrative capacity. The more you limit the access of your data, the safer it will be.

Backup your data

Ransomware is all about holding your system and data hostage. With a good backup, you can significantly decrease your liability. Keep in mind, however, that some cyber criminals will embed their virus far ahead of time so that it is present in your backups, too. We recommend backups for at least 60-90 days.

Always keep learning

Cybercrime evolves almost daily. Read the news to stay up-to-date on the latest scams, then share that information with your teams, and take every opportunity to learn more about how to keep yourself and your business protected.
