    Preventing Cyber Crimes

    According to the Ponemon report, less than 1/3 of the attacks were generated by external hackers or malicious insiders. The root cause of most of the attacks was simply negligence or human mistakes.

    One of the best ways to prevent cyber crimes from occurring is to have precautions in place. Here are a number of good practices you can implement right away:

    Ensure your internet and computer systems are set up securely
    Keep strong password requirements for everyone
    Create an internet usage policy
    Do NOT share passwords or computers with anyone externally (except trusted sources such as your IT service person)
    Educate and train employees on proper computer usage at work
    These steps are basic but it is often what allows cyber crimes to sneak into your business. The tougher your preventative measures then the less likely you will be a victim.
