Speros How To Educate Your Employees About Internet Security
  • IT
  1. Make Internet Security a Priority
    There should be a policy in place for how employees operate their computers and company mobile devices, use email and social media, and browse the web. These rules should be specific, updated frequently, and communicated to all employees to protect customer and corporate information, and avoid putting your company at risk.
  2. Practice Proper Password Protocol
    The most popular passwords are simple, and easy for cybercriminals to crack. Employees should be instructed to create complex passwords, and systems should be implemented that require employees to change their passwords on a regular basis.
  3. Avoid Phishing Scams
    Phishers use fake websites that mimic the appearance of legitimate websites to collect personal and financial information. Instruct employees to access their financial institutions from saved bookmarks in their web browsers, and not to follow links in emails.
  4. Have a System Back-up In Place
    Regardless of what measures you have taken to prevent a data breach, a cyber attack can still threaten your business. Regularly backing up your data, and having a recovery plan in place, can save you from a financially devastating event.
  5. Implement a Spam & Web Filter
    Limit the number of criminal communications by using a spam filter that weeds out spam emails sent to your employees, and implement web filters that limit the time employees spend on specific websites.
  6. Utilize Managed Services
    Management tools can be used to search your network for unauthorized devices and vulnerabilities. These tools can also be used to ensure that all software is up to date on all devices connected to your network, and restrict or ban software that poses a security risk to your network.
  7. Manage Mobile Devices
    One unprotected mobile device can cause catastrophic data loss. When a business-connected mobile device goes missing, the chance that the finder will attempt to access the networks they are connected to is extremely high. Mobile Device Management is essential.
  8. Stay Up-to-Date on the Latest Threats
    Your IT personnel should regularly share news and information about the latest cyber security threats to employees, as well as how to protect against them. Employees should also be encouraged to report anything strange on their computer to the IT staff.
  9. Choose the Right Security Partner

"Great staff! immediately responsive to our urgent repair requests. They were meticulous in diagnosing our issues and made the repairs as quickly as they could. They are a pleasure to work with! Speros provided emergency repair service during a weekend when our cabling suffered accidental damage. Speros dispatched two technicians that worked tirelessly to restore the multiple severed fiber cables.  It was not long before the entire campus was back to normal.  It was exceptional and timely service by Speros."

"Speros has been our law firm's primary internet service provider for 10+ years. Rarely do I need to ask for a service work order because they are on top of regular maintenance. Recently, I was getting requests to reboot following critical software, asked to set reboots to be automatic after midnight, so it did not disrupt our workdays. Within 30 minutes of my request, it was done. THAT is good service. THANK YOU, SPEROS Team."

"Have worked with Speros for over two decades mostly for old school landline requirements of my medical office.

"Everyone at Speros was very friendly and helpful. They communicated with our existing software/hardware management company and made it out to work on our network quickly on short notice, and had the whole issue solved in very little time. Will use this business again for our network needs. The tech that came out was amazingly easy to work with and was respectful of our hospitals covid-19 policies."
