This week, it's time for information about digital security and what you can do about it. When I previously discussed security, I mentioned that the tone when people talk about digital security, privacy, and recently hacked companies is dire, but I want to focus on what you can do about it. Recently, Entrepreneur published two great articles on the topic, one broadly covering the topic and the other specifically addressing the issue of employee theft.

In the article which broadly covered digital security I'd like to focus on the latter two points: the illusion of security and the right approach. First, it's important to remember that ignoring security entirely is asking for trouble, but going overboard can be just as costly. Securing your systems is an on-going process and should be discussed regularly - whether that's an audit of who has access to what or just a discussion about what services are being used and where the credentials are. The task of adding digital security of company systems will never be finished, so make sure you're budgeting for those costs appropriately. That said, there are five very simple things that can be adopted by every company and cost nothing that are outlined in more detail in the aforementioned article:

All five of these things are simple and free and can save your company a significant amount of money in the long-run. In an upcoming blog, I'll go into more detail on the second article, which looked at how to address employee theft.
