Data Breach and Security: 5 Steps for Better Protection

Companies of all sizes and industries are vulnerable to a data breach, and there are many channels through which cyber criminals can work. You don’t have to be a sitting duck; by identifying risks and implementing the right technology and/or managed services, you can prevent your company from becoming a statistic.

One of the easiest ways for hackers to get into a network is to simply sound out emails with malicious links in them. These phishing scams, despite being discussed thoroughly, are still successful because users get duped into opening suspicious links. Managing these risks is as easy as implanting educational programming that warns users of the telltale signs of a phishing scam.

But not all data breach attempts are as easy to prevent. User error is a fallacy of the ignorant, but even the most tech-minded can make mistakes. For example, misconfiguring assets is a technical negligence scenario that can grant access to cyber criminals, which leads to a data breach. Making sure all anti-virus solutions are updated can help prevent these breaches, but care must also be taken in configuring firewalls and installing intrusion detection systems.

The list of attacks so far in 2023 has been significant, but that doesn’t mean you have to play a reactionary role. You can do your part to be proactive and prevent breaches from occurring at your organization.

5 Tips for Better Protection

Ensuring that your users are educated and your IT staff is on top of updates and properly configuring assets are both important aspects of preventing breaches, but consider the following cyber security tips:

  1. Investigate new and robust endpoint security solutions
  2. Make users accountable for their online actions
  3. Enhance firewall security
  4. Prioritize cyber security in your overall business continuity strategy
  5. Partner with an expert on security solutions

Knowing all the latest enhancements in cyber security and data breach protection solutions is only one part of what an internal IT team does. This means they may lack the necessary time to invest in protecting your data. Outsourcing assistance can be of great value, especially in today’s climate where cyber criminals seem to always have the upper hand. You need seasoned experts on your side to evaluate your workflow and match technology to your unique needs.

Sports Production Services
Safari’s work at All-Star game was terrific. Our client had a last-minute ask that my team was not aware of until the day a representative arrived on site. Their techs didn’t have a solid plan on what their needs were but Safari’s complete knowledge of networks and sharp inquiries into what our client was trying to do literally saved the day in getting their project off the ground. They could NOT have pulled off what they needed without Safari’s involvement.

I travel to sporting events, especially golf tournaments, often. Critical to my daily operation is stable and quick connectivity as I'm constantly transmitting large volumes of images. I know that when I'm working with the Safari Team I've got nothing to worry about. Their systems always work and the set-up and connection are simple. I would highly recommend Safari Events to any vendor in need of voice and data services

I just wanted to put on record my thanks for your help. The connectivity you always provide is the best we get at any tournament worldwide and is always stable. When we had a minor problem this year, you kindly changed things for us several times until, with your help, I was able to identify that it was actually a problem at our base back home! Without your help, I wouldn't have been able to do that. Many thanks, See you next time!
