Ohio Commercial Business Insurance: How to Protect Against Cyber Threats

In this day and age, having a business in Ohio is going to come with a lot of responsibilities and concerns. A large concern today is hacking, data breaches, and ransomware. This is what cybersecurity insurance is for in your commercial insurance policy.

At Meiners Insurance, we want Avon Lake, OH business owners to have the most thorough cybersecurity protection possible. In addition to cybersecurity insurance, there are steps you can take to protect your company’s data, networks, and technology.

Password Protection

Having a good password policy at work can change the face of your entire business. Make sure that you have password protection for each of your devices and users. Create passwords that are impossible to guess, using long characters and words a hacker can’t detect.

Install Security Software

You may already have anti-spyware and anti-virus software on your network. Beef that up a little with security software that will protect everything.

Be sure that you have updates on everything and have all operating systems fully up to date. You want to also be sure that this information is only available to certain employees. 

Your IT department, or yourself if you don’t have one, should be the only ones responsible for updates to your technology and software. Limit access to ensure your internal threats are minimized.

Lock Up Technology When Not in Use

When your business is closed for the day, make sure that your technology is locked up or secure. Passwords are one way to do this. Keep technology not in use in a safe or locked closet when and wherever possible.

Keep a list of all of your technology and inventory and update it on a regular basis. Your commercial insurance company will be happy to know that you have a tight security system for your technology.
