5 WAYS TO PROTECT YOURSELF (AND YOUR BUSINESS) FROM MALWARE

The future of your business is in danger.

Malware, or malicious software, is a tricky cyber-villain set out to damage your computer and gain sensitive information that could severely impact your business.

As cybercrime becomes larger than ever, even the super-est of superheroes need to be protected.

Here are 5 ways to start:

1. Regularly change your passwords.
If you’ve been infected by malware or fear a potential attack, change your passwords—and not all to the same thing. This helps hackers from spreading your information and gaining more access. We recommend using two-factor authentication, a multi-step verification process.

2. Use antivirus software.
Make it a good one—and one that’s right for your needs.

3. Keep your software updated.
Because cybercriminals exploit holes in antivirus software, outdated software is a major cause of malware infections.

4. Educate your employees.
Employee errors, like clicking malicious links or not updating their computers, are a root cause of cybercrime. So make sure they know what to be aware of.

5. Conduct regular scans.
Using free malware detection software, you can detect any malicious behavior before it impacts your business.

So put on your cape, and be your computer’s hero. And if anything goes wrong, give us the signal.
