Several recent high-profile breaches of trusted Oregon brands like Yoshida, McMenamins, and Bob’s Red Mill have exposed employee data and brought operational software and reservation and booking systems to a standstill. Insurance companies are reacting to the increase in E-Crime and data breaches by toughening up their requirements before an offer of coverage is made. Here are three things businesses can do to protect themselves from cyberattacks:
- Conduct an annual company-wide cyber and data security audit.
- Develop a cyber-attack and breach response handbook.
- Offer regular staff training on how to protect password credentials, and avoid social engineering and phishing attacks.
