Transcript of the video:

Protecting corporate and personal data has become the #1 cybersecurity priority in many organizations. Here are four easy ways to keep your data safe:
.
1. Encourage the use of strong passwords
.
A majority of data breaches and network intrusions are a result of compromised credentials. Encourage all staff members to follow password best practices, including creating long, complex passwords, keeping credentials secret, and using a password manager.
.
2. Update software and operating systems
.
One of the main reasons software and OS vendors release new versions is to seal off security loopholes. By installing every new patch and update, you’re getting the latest data security features, which reinforces your overall cybersecurity.
.
3. Keep employees educated
.
Employees can unintentionally or maliciously compromise data systems by falling for scams and phishing advances, installing malware unknowingly, or neglecting safety protocols. To avoid this, train your employees on the importance of observing data safety policies, and how to detect and avert various security threats.
.
4. Hire a professional who knows how to identify threats early
.
Maintaining data security within your organization is not something you have to do on your own. A third-party expert like Consolidated Technologies, Inc. can analyze your company from an outsider’s perspective, conduct security assessments, and identify all the data loss risks before they compromise your data.
.
In summary, the four easy ways to avoid data loss are:
.
Encourage the use of strong passwords
Update software and operating systems
Keep employees educated
Hire a professional who knows how to identify threats early
