The Real Way To Protect Your Company Against Hackers

The Real Way To Protect Your Company Against Hackers
Let’s get one thing straight from the outset: defending your data against hackers is a tremendous challenge. It is far harder to contain information than it is to get access to it via nefarious means. With that said, there’s a right way to do things and a wrong way.

The wrong way is to install anti-virus software on your company network and assume that that’s all you need. It’s not.

Software is useful to a point, but it can’t do everything by itself. You need to complement it with other strategies. Anti-virus programs and firewalls are the bare minimum - and often not even that.

The right approach is to give your cybersecurity managers the skills they need to contend with the evolving technological landscape. Managers need both technical, and people skills since everyone in your organization is a potential network risk, from the CEO down to the intern.
