Have You Had The Talk Yet?

Talk to Your Employees About Some of These Information Security Policies

Keeping a clean machine: Your company should have clear rules for what employees can install and keep on their work computers. Make sure they understand and abide by these rules. Unknown outside programs can open security vulnerabilities in your network.


Following good password practices: Making passwords long and strong, with a mix of uppercase and lowercase letters, numbers and symbols, along with changing them routinely and keeping them private are the easiest and most effective steps your employees can take to protect your data.


When in doubt, throw it out: Employees should know not to open suspicious links in email, tweets, posts, online ads, messages or attachments – even if they know the source. Employees should also be instructed about your company's spam filters and how to use them to prevent unwanted, harmful email.


Backing up their work: Whether you set your employees' computers to backup automatically or ask that they do it themselves, employees should be instructed on their role in protecting their work.


Staying watchful and speaking up: Your employees should be encouraged to keep an eye out and say something if they notice strange happenings on their computer.

  • I am truly impressed by the focus the team places on the requests from our company. They listen, and no matter who I get on the phone, I get the answer that I am looking for. I can tell that they keep excellent notes, and it is because of this level of detail that engineers/technical support staff are always up to date on knowledge of our systems. They are patient, professional, and incredibly nice as individuals. They have provided assistance even on days when they were out of the office. With every request, they have made sure that they review the details with us to ensure that the information/questions were captured accurately. Truly an excellent team!!
