Three Ways You Can Secure Your Email

Envelope and people

Email is an essential part of business productivity. However, it is vulnerable to data loss due to threats like phishing and ransomware. An estimated 70% of businesses will experience data loss due to human error, system failure or some other disaster. Here are three ways you can secure your email.

  1. Customize your spam settings to block suspicious email addresses and set an approved senders list
  2. Use an antivirus to scan for malicious links/attachments
  3. Don’t respond or click on any links from senders you don’t know

For additional protection, consider using our SIEM integrated Secure IT – Mail solution. Receive security, backup and marketing tools for Office 365.

It’s important to protect your WiFi to ensure availability and to keep out bad actors. Here are tips you can use to secure your WiFi.

  1. Change the default admin login (username and password) to your router
  2. Use network encryption
  3. Provide guests with a separate network

To further protect your WiFi, consider using a security solution like Secure IT – WiFi. Receive a secure wireless solution with 24/7 security event management that scans for malicious attacks within your network.
