Hackers are hard at work trying to breach businesses and organizations. In 2021 we saw a significant number of large scale cyber incidents and ransomware attacks. We’ll talk about three things you can do to better protect your business against these attacks coming up next.

Protecting your digital assets against hacking and other cybersecurity threats should be a top priority for any business. Here are three things you can do to help protect your business from hacking in the new year.

Number 1: Perform a Cybersecurity Risk Assessment
With so many new advances in technology, businesses are filled with a wide variety of hardware, software, and other services. Unfortunately, this means more entry points for a cyberattack. In order to better protect your company against hacking or other cyber threats, the first step should be to identify what hardware, software, and systems you have in the company, and look for potential risks.

Number 2: Check Your Cybersecurity Insurance.
While purchasing and maintaining a cybersecurity insurance policy can seem like a costly proposition, it is a critical way to protect your company against major losses. Cyber insurance can provide coverage in the event your business is a victim of a cyberattack. In most cases, this insurance covers legal expenses and lost business revenue following an attack.

Number 3: Implement a Threat Management Solution
A firewall is the most basic form of cybersecurity, but firewalls alone are no longer enough. Organizations need a multilayered approach to cybersecurity that protects against today's advanced threats. A threat management solution can protect networks and computers from hackers, viruses, worms, ransomware, and other common forms of malware.
