IT Security Tip #45:
Is It Time For Cybersecurity Planning?
The time to start planning for a security threat isn’t during a virus outbreak or immediately after you discover funds transferred within your banking accounts. Decisions and judgments made during this time are typically driven by emotion and not facts. The time to make those cyberthreat plans is now.
Things to consider when you’re planning:
- Physical access to your building(s)
- What to do with lost or stolen mobile devices
- PCI (payment card industry) compliance requirements
- Data-breach incident response
- Threat monitoring
That’s where we are here to help! Give us a call and we’ll be glad to help you evaluate your “cybersecure” plan.
There are great resources out there for businesses that just don’t know where to start with cybersecurity. Take a look at http://www.fcc.gov/cyberplanner for a customizable guide to where to get started with operational and organizational planning.

Microsoft Tips for Windows
Use The Web Version Of Your Apps
You can help keep your work secure and up-to-date by using the web version of your Office apps like Word, Outlook, or Excel. Using the web versions and storing your work to the cloud makes sure that your data stays on the server without needing to be downloaded to your local device.
