Prevent a Ransomware Attack on Your Business

Aug 11, 2022 10:07:56 AM

GroupSense CEO Kurtis Minder was honored to present at the Metroport Chamber Membership Luncheon on August 10. The Metroport Chamber brings seven business communities together to connect and build lasting partnerships that strengthen the Texas business community. 

As small businesses grow, they become pillars of the local community. During his session, "What You Need to Know About Ransomware," Kurtis spoke to the Chamber about what small businesses can do to prevent ransomware and other cyber attacks. As a business founder, Kurtis understands the challenges that small businesses face in the cyber world, so he gave practical steps that businesses can start taking today.

As Americans, we have a responsibility to practice good cyber hygiene. When we protect ourselves, we protect each other. To take the first steps to good cyber hygiene, Kurtis recommends these measures:

  • Use a password manager like Last Pass or Bitwarden
  • Enable multi-factor authentication when possible
  • Develop an email and credential policy 
  • Patch and update as soon as you're prompted 
  • Backup your data often, in multiple places if possible
  • Establish secure remote access 
  • Take part in security awareness and training often
  • And more...

Though ransomware disproportionately affects small businesses, the important thing to note is that it is preventable. If you'd like to learn more about securing your business, download Tips to Better Protect Your Data here.
