Nowadays, employees do not strictly use the computer at their desk to complete work. The typical employee uses his or her work computer as well as a personal laptop, tablet and/or smartphone to get work done as efficiently as possible. The challenge lies in securing all of these devices against the many evildoers lurking in the digital realm. After all, the number of cyberattacks zeroing in on mobile computing devices is growing by the day. Here are some of the ways our IT services team in Atlanta can secure your team’s mobile devices:
Update the Operating System
Most computing devices have an outdated operating system or are not updated to the latest operating system in a timely manner. After all, it takes time and effort to stay abreast of such updates and implement them. Our IT services team in Atlanta can perform operating system updates on your behalf. Fail to update your employees’ computing devices and it is only a matter of time until malicious exploits will cause all sorts of problems. Our team can help implement updates and ultimately reduce the vulnerability of your team’s devices.
Provide Your Team with Cyber Security Training
Your employees will receive all sorts of unsolicited messages by way of email, text messages, instant messages and beyond. If your crew is not properly trained on the basics of cybersecurity, it is only a matter of time until they fall into a trap, be it in the form of phishing or clicking a link that leads to a virus. Malicious links place harmful programs on employee devices and/or attempt to gather information from those devices for nefarious purposes. Lean on our IT team for cybersecurity training and we will help your team identify cyber threats, thwart them and keep your business operations running like a well-oiled machine.
It is imperative the data on your employees’ devices is properly encrypted. Some computing devices already have an encryption feature available for use. However, you can always lean on our team for assistance with encryption for devices and information of all types. Even if the information in question is accessed by cyber miscreants, they won’t be able to understand it as the encryption conceals its true meaning.
