3 Keys to an Effective BYOD Policy

3 Keys to an Effective BYOD Policy

Posted on Jul 14, 2016

As companies become increasingly dependent on technology for core business processes, they are becoming more and more vulnerable to security-related issues. From company servers to laptops and mobile devices, there’s never been a more crucial time for device management strategies and deployment directives. As the bring-your-own-device (BYOD) movement grows, the imperative to have robust BYOD policies in place becomes all the more important to minimize the risk of breach. Here are three key ways to implement an effective BYOD policy for your small business:   1) Employee Education and Awareness   The most important aspect is first informing and educating your employees on the potential risks and harm they could cause by using their own devices in unsecure ways. As companies become increasingly more mobile, it is imperative that employees are trained in the importance of securing their devices to avoid security-related issues. In the event of a breach or lost/stolen device, does your staff know what procedures to follow? Continuous education and reiteration of these hazards and protocols are the best bet for keeping a secure network.   2) Mobile Software Solutions   As mobile device use in the workplace becomes more commonplace and employees begin to store and access sensitive data on these devices, a comprehensive mobile device management solution becomes essential for securing your information and network. These management systems can help govern levels of access for employees, along with how devices can operate on a network. Essentially, a good mobile management system can alleviate a lot of the traditional hazards and risks while unlocking the advantages of a mobile environment.   3) State it in...

6 Steps for Managing a Virus Attack

6 Steps for Managing a Virus Attack

Posted on Jun 14, 2016

A computer virus is a form of malware that can replicate and spread through unwitting user actions. According to the Microsoft Security Intelligence Report, viruses account for 57% of malware instances. According to 2015 statistics, between 12% and 16% of computers in Canada report malware and unwanted software encounters. Viruses represent a significant vulnerability, especially for business computers. They have the ability to destroy systems, compromise data security, and even affect the reputation of your organization. In case your business ever encounters a virus, here are some important steps for how to manage it.   1. Inform users and clients   If your system has been compromised, the first step is to inform any other users or clients that might also be affected by this. It’s important for them to be kept informed about the status of the virus, along with the security of any relating, sensitive data.   2. Ensure that you are using current anti-virus software and that it is being updated whenever necessary.   Anti-virus software is important for containing and notifying users about potential threats. Without regular updates, it can provide windows of opportunity for attacks to occur and penetrate your IT infrastructure using known exploits. Always keep your system up to date and active.   3. Scan the computer   Once the anti-virus program has contained and removed the virus, scan the computer again to ensure the threat has been eliminated. It’s also beneficial to schedule a scan once the computer is not being used to give it a thorough assessment.   4. Re-format the computer’s hard disk   In some cases where the...
