✓ Step #1: Inventory Your Hardware & Software

✓ Step #2: Automate Patches

✓ Step#3: Restrict Administrative Privileges

✓ Step #4: Start a Security Awareness Program

  • Your employees will look for the simplest way to do their jobs. Give them solutions that are simple and more secure.
  • Annual security awareness isn’t successful. You must keep security constantly present in their minds. Having monthly or bi-monthly training sessions is much more effective. (With solutions like Wizer and KnowBe4, this is very easy to do)
  • Testing employees is a great way to reinforce the message. Simulated phishing and social engineering leave a lasting impression that training alone can never achieve.
