That means that you should do everything in your power to mitigate such risk.
Where do you start?
With your first line of defense, your antivirus program.
Free antivirus programs were created for one reason, they want you to try use the free version so that you will upgrade.
To completely secure your devices and your network, it’s best to go with paid antivirus programs.
They provide multiple updates per day, and do proper scanning of your device and network to prevent any threats getting onto your device.
A firewall is the first place we would start.
A firewall filters traffic coming to and exiting your business network.
With the right set of rules in place and the right technology platform, you can potentially block 99.9% of all attacks.
The last 0.01% blocking should happen by your network management software that tracks and traces data moving on your network.
Network Management normally happens remotely, but sometimes, the initial setup requires a technician to visit the physical location to install apps and services on the network.
Where network problems exist, a total network analysis needs to be done to evaluate the health of the network before installing network management services.
