1. Create secure passwords
Create strong passwords for all online accounts, and have employees do the same. Change passwords every 60 to 90 days to keep passwords protected, making it more difficult for hackers to get access to sensitive data.

2. Back-up Data
Consistently backup any sensitive data about employees or customers. This can be done using external hard drives, dvds and online backup services. Backing up data is easy to do, and can keep you secure from losing important data in the event of a breach.

3. Staff Training & Education
Make sure employees are aware of what is necessary to stay protected online. Communicate with your employees to keep them up-to-date and aware of any security changes that are implemented into the business.

4. Install Security Software
Use security software such as an antivirus, firewall and anti-malware to protect against any viruses and threats. Make sure the software is always updated and remove any unsecured files immediately.

5. Use Encryption To Protect Data
Encrypting data can protect against unauthorized users gaining access or stealing any of your businesses private information.
