3 Critical Security Best Practices to Implement for Your Business in 2022

As the world recovers from the COVID-19 pandemic and people return to their offices, businesses are seeing opportunities to update safety policies and procedures. As many enterprises now move to a hybrid model that combines remote and office work, risk comes from all directions, both physical and digital. Here are some security best practices to consider in 2022 to protect your business.

1. Door Access Control System Upgrade
Security starts at the front door. If you do not have an access control system, you should consider installing it. If you already have it, you may need to update it. When evaluating the best access control system for your premises, one of your choices is to install an on-site access control system or cloud software.



2. Protecting Your Business from Identity Fraud
Of all the security issues facing by the companies, identity fraud is one of the scariest because it has the potential to damage your relationships with customers and employees.



Common Type of Identity Fraud

Phishing
Phishing is a form of email fraud. The sender can impersonate a financial institutions or government agency and request personal information from you. If an email requests a large quantity of personal information, such as your name, address, credit card information, or bank account number, do not click any links and mark the email as spam.

Cold calling
Cold calling is when criminals call you, pretend to be a financial institutions or government agency and force you to give them your personal information. You should always reject unsolicited phone calls and presume they are malicious. Never provide them with any of your personal information.

Hacking
Hackers can access a company's database to steal data, such as passwords, credit card information, and social security numbers. The risk of data breaches is particularly high in the post-pandemic world, as many companies have adopted hybrid working models.

3. Provide Regular Security Training
With an increasing number of people working remotely or commuting between the office and their home on a hybrid work schedule, the potential of cybersecurity vulnerabilities has grown. The simplest method to reduce these risks is to provide personnel security awareness training that is updated at least once a year to reflect the most recent cybersecurity threats.



Security methods are always developing.
Scammers, thieves, and cybercriminals are always developing new strategies and practices that pose physical and digital security risks. As you apply the security best practices outlined above, bear in mind that securing your company necessitates continual attention and reevaluation to maintain the safety of your information, staff, customers, and assets.
