Tech Tip #2: Keep Security Software Current
Our goal is to build a culture of cybersecurity: we want to educate and train not only our employees but other organizations so that they know how to protect themselves and their businesses.
One way to do this is to keep security software current. Having the latest security software, web browser, and operating system is the best defense against viruses, malware, and other online threats.
If you don't have Automatic Software Updates, many programs will automatically connect and update to defend against known risks. Turning this on will operate automatically and will help increase your network security.
It is important to know that if you do have security software, keep a clean machine. Your company should have clear rules and expectations for what employees can install, view, and keep on their work computers.
