It is impossible to prevent cyber attacks 100%, but you are certainly not helpless.
The Cybersecurity Centre (CCB-Belgium) recommends that companies and organisations draw up a (cyber) emergency plan, update it and test it regularly.
It is important that every employee knows what his or her task is in case of a cyber incident.
- Keep your contact lists up to date and on paper as well.
- If necessary, ask for help from a partner or an external company. Arrange this in advance.
- Use two-factor authentication (2FA) where possible, both on individual accounts and on the social media accounts of companies or organisations. Consider introducing 2FA or MFA for the most important company accesses.
- Ensure your systems are up to date and always keep essential and relevant backups offline.
As cyber experts and security companies keep reminding us, basic security measures can make a big difference, not only for the individual internet user but also for companies and organisations: recognising and preventing phishing attempts, using strong passwords and two-factor authentication (2FA), applying patches and regular system updates remain key factors in a good cyber defence.
