As the CEO of Tresorit, István Lám has had to implement internal policies and measures to avoid cyber
1.Priority and Strategy: Anyone can fall victim to cyberattacks, and companies should proceed with this expectation and attitude. Further, cyber security should be treated as a priority within the organization. What’s more, a security strategy must be put in place as well, and also keep an eye out for new threats and tools.
2. Awareness: Spread awareness among employees to avoid negligence. Employ training sessions to raise awareness so that employees completely comprehend the importance of data protection and security protocols. An information security officer can be designated for this purpose.
3. Passwords and Authentication: Encourage employees to use password managers to create strong and unique passwords and ensure that they change passwords regularly. Recommend that they never use an old password and ensure that the same password is never used for more than one account. Further, tell them to never commit passwords to paper. That aside, complement your password policy with two-factor authentication for sensitive data.
4. Antivirus: Install and regularly update antivirus protection. Follow up on any threats or concerns that the antivirus software flags up.
5. Ransomware: Back up data regularly to ensure that you limit the chance of falling prey to ransomware. However, do keep in mind that simply using a cloud or a hosted service doesn’t automatically mean your data is backed up. Instead, ensure that you are explicitly contracted to have your data secured.
6. Encryption: Encryption is the best way to protect the privacy and confidentiality of data. To this end, use end-to-end encryption for confidential and important documents. With end-to-end encryption, your files are encrypted before they leave your device, and can only be decrypted by the intended recipient.
