    In theory, the smaller they are, the easier it is to hack em. And they can come up with some big bucks if needed.

    I used to think that too. But learned when I worked for a small business that because smaller companies dont' usually have compliance in place in what they do, such as keeping data safe they are easier to target. We worked with a company called TitanHQ in Ireland and they were pretty good at securing the business for us. But I've left that company now.

    Implement a strong password policy: Encourage your employees to use strong, unique passwords and to change them regularly. Consider using a password manager to generate and store passwords securely.

    Keep software and operating systems up to date: Regularly update all software and operating systems to ensure that the latest security patches are installed. This includes software on all devices, including laptops, smartphones, and servers.

    Use anti-virus and anti-malware software: Install anti-virus and anti-malware software on all devices to detect and remove any malicious software that may be present. Make sure to keep the software updated to ensure that it can detect the latest threats.

    Use a firewall: Use a firewall to protect your network from unauthorized access. This can be a hardware or software solution.

    Enable two-factor authentication: Use two-factor authentication to add an extra layer of security to your accounts and devices.

    Train your employees: Regularly train your employees on cyber security best practices, including how to identify and avoid phishing attempts, how to handle sensitive data, and how to respond to security incidents.

    Regularly backup your data: Regularly backup your data to a secure location. This will allow you to quickly restore your data in case of a security breach.

    Have a incident response plan: Have an incident response plan in place to quickly respond to a security incident and minimize damage.

    It's important to note that cyber security is a constantly evolving field and new threats are emerging all the time, so it's important to stay informed and up-to-date on the latest best practices and technologies to keep your small business secure.

    Your hosting platform is a wise business investment, then VPN and firewalls. Computer monitoring systems help to a certain degree, but any stricter protocols in this regard can negatively impact staff and how they perceive the company. After the pandemic and lockdowns, employees are more lenient and trusting of employees and provide more work-from-home options during the week.
