Small Business Owners: Prepare for Cyber Attacks

Posted by: Eric Cormier on Tuesday, March 8, 2022

The Louisiana Department of Justice is encouraging small business owners to consider ways to protect themselves from malware, viruses, ransomware and phishing.

          According to the state, 88 percent of small business owners feel their operations are vulnerable to cyber-attack.

 

      Here are a few tips the agency recommends:

  • Create strong passwords that contain both lower and uppercase letters, symbols, and numbers for all networks and accounts that contain sensitive information.
  • Install and regularly update anti-virus, network firewalls, and information encryption tools to scan for and counteract viruses and harmful programs.
  • Establish basic security practices and policies for employees. Ensure they are implemented in ever part of your business.
