Cybercriminals target valuable data. Strengthen your IT security with firewalls, intrusion detection systems, and encryption. Regularly update software to avoid vulnerabilities.

Data loss can occur due to cyberattacks or natural disasters. Ensure data is regularly backed up, stored off-site or in the cloud, and regularly test backups for integrity.

  • Improve Employee Awareness

Conduct security awareness training to help employees identify and respond to threats. Promote a culture of preparedness and test employee readiness through drills.

  • Review Insurance Policies

Maintain proper insurance coverage, including property, business interruption, and cybersecurity insurance. Keep records of assets, inventory, and financial transactions.

  • Evaluate Vendor and Supplier Preparedness

Assess your supply chain partners’ disaster preparedness plans. Ensure they align with your strategies and recommend annual testing.
