How To Mitigate Cybercrime

While it may not be possible to completely eradicate cybercrime and ensure complete internet security, businesses can reduce their exposure to it by maintaining an effective cybersecurity strategy using a defense-in-depth approach to securing systems, networks and data.

Some steps for mitigating cybercrime include the following:

  • develop clear policies and procedures for the business and employees
  • create cybersecurity incident response management plans to support these policies and procedures
  • outline the security measures that are in place about how to protect systems and corporate data;
  • use two-factor authentication (2FA) apps or physical security keys
  • activate 2FA on every online account when possible
  • tighten up your email spam filter aggressiveness to filter out phishing emails
  • carefully scrutinize all email requests for transfer of funds to determine if the requests are out of the ordinary
  • continually train employees on cybersecurity policies and procedures and what to do in the event of security breaches
  • keep websites, endpoint devices and systems current with all software release updates and patches
  • back up data and information regularly to reduce the damage in case of a ransomware attack or data breach
