Beware the Millennial

While we are certainly not targeting our brilliant young Millennials, they bring a very different angle to the workplace that was never there before 2010.

Yes, our older generation is very much online, on various data recovery specialists.

Cyber attacks are rife, and even more so when a mobile device user enters a business. They are, for the hackers and SEO Agency must set it up in such a manner that it won’t allow any kind of access unless there is a double password system.

Changing the passcodes is also important, and it is best if your staff keeps the passwords in the head, a trying task we know, but it is best.

Malvertising

What, you ask, is that? A new form of advertising? Well, kind of. Again, we receive a constant flow of “sellers” on our phone, by way of SMS or sometimes pop up, and just one false move can allow a hacker to get into your phone, and in turn, the network you are connected to.

Spam comes in many forms, and not only as an email. Just clicking or tapping on the spam can allow access.

Trojans are not just lovely mythical horses; they are real viruses that can mess your entire system up. A simple email receipt and an even simpler click on an attachment or link can send a virus shooting across all avenues linked to their device.

The Solution?

Make sure your emails are scanned before they land in your employee’s inboxes, and if they receive SMS’s and even WhatsApp messages onto their phone, ensure they are not receiving them whilst linked to your network Wi-Fi connection.

Wi-Fi What if?

Again, being connected to your company Wi-Fi is great for those wanting to save on data, but it is not so great when they invite all and sundry in for afternoon tea and cake.

There are many loopholes and weaknesses present in Wi-Fi connections and don’t believe everything you hear from your network support. From fiber optic to good old ADSL, your business is vulnerable, period.

The Solution?

Just don’t allow it. Don’t let your staff connect to your Wi-Fi with their personal devices. Or if their device is vital to their function in your business, then set it up that only certain applications can be linked to the Wi-Fi.

The Productivity Dilemma

While we are always chasing the next dollar sign, which sometimes means being accessible 24/7, it can also open up greater risks in your company.

The Solution?

Be aware of what everyone is connecting to and for what reasons. If it means banning certain applications on their phones, laptops, and other mobile devices whilst in your buildings, then so be it.

This is your business, and you don’t need those that didn’t work their asses off to mess it up with a simple mistaken click. Data recovery can be expensive, so rather take precautions.
