Hackers know that many lending institutions and small businesses are struggling as a result of the economic downturn. So, use strong authentication with more than one factor. Encrypt all data. Develop your security policies – including those that focus on acceptable usage, data retention and destruction, and secure telecommuting – and make them clear to your employees. Use antivirus software, and perform vulnerability assessments and penetration testing studies. Importantly, you should have an incident-response plan and a cybersecurity partner that is capable of helping you when you face an incident or a breach occurs.
