Avoid cyber security threats in 2018 with one simple step.

If you’re like many business owners, you may not feel equipped to deal with the looming threat of a cyber breach. But don’t panic – help reduce your chances of being hacked with this one simple step.

Always update your software.

It may sound like a no brainer, but there’s a reason why large companies like Microsoft and Apple spend so much of their time patching security holes as soon as they’re aware of them. This often happens long before the issue is exploited so that possible threats can be avoided. If you’re not updating your software – you’re not taking advantage of these patches and leaving your data vulnerable to hackers.

Make sure your business follows in the footsteps of the most secure companies out there. Require your employees to shut down their computers at the end of each day to ensure software updates aren’t delayed and can take place overnight if needed.

By updating your devices and making sure you’re covered by a comprehensive cyber insurance policy, you can set your mind at ease knowing that you’re taking a proactive approach to keeping your data safe.
