Small Business Cybersecurity: 7 Ways to Improve Data Safety

June 14, 2022

Small businesses are more likely to be victims of data breaches than large companies, but owners don’t need an entire IT department to take some fundamental cybersecurity precautions. Here are seven ways to improve IT security:

  • penetration test
  • multi-factor authentication
  • cloud security
  • cybersecurity education and training
  • regular security checks on your network and connected devices
  • cyber insurance
  • firewall
