Online Safety – 5 common mistakes companies make

Companies must be informed/up to date to avoid the risk of information breaks. Both because of the rapid growth of online attacks and the constant mistakes that are made in the digital world.

Online Security

Companies now find two paths that must be traveled side by side: the path of digital transformation, to obtain a competitive advantage and the path of security of their data.

Online Security

Running away from problems only makes them bigger. Facing the attacks will only make your company stronger. The Samsys Systems Engineering Department explains 5 common mistakes that happen in companies:

  1. They do not practice basic hygiene of their systems
    Point. Attacks undergo changes and with the advancement of technology anything is possible. Most companies have complex network systems in place with immense opportunities for hackers to infiltrate and break through your security. What we call “basic network hygiene” such as outdated software and unsuitable operating systems puts your business at risk of attack.
  2. Trust multiple third-party providers
    Some of the most advanced companies in the market have already realized that they must align their security strategy to protect their organizations' greatest asset: data. Companies today tend to work with many third-party vendors who develop applications or provide services. Do you know the power these service providers have in your company? Do they have 100% access to your data?
    At Samsys we have solutions that continuously monitor abnormal behaviors that prevent possible attacks on your endpoints 24/7.
  3. Believe that an antivirus is enough
    Entrusting your company's security exclusively to a simple antivirus is a very common and risky mistake. Computer crime is just an email away Phishing successful to happen: one click on a link and your company data is compromised.
  4. do not create a online safety culture
    While many of the online attacks that take place are on large companies, it is wrong to assume that all other businesses are not or will not be targeted by an attack. The best way to avoid is to prevent. In other words, create a culture of online safety awareness. All employees must be aware of existing threats and prevent threats from becoming reality.
    Online security is a priority for Samsys. through our Academy we promote events that help raise awareness of the importance of issues related to this issue. On the 24th of October, sign up for free, in the demonstration of HPE – Nimble and Infosight solutions where we will talk about the theme “Artificial Intelligence associated with Data Management”.
  5. Don't prepare for an eventual attack
    Companies must accept the fact that these types of situations do not just happen to others. The key is to have a plan to prevent or recover from an eventual system crash.
