Take Action

  1. Follow these 3 important steps for cybersecurity:
    • Patch your devices and computers; apply security updates as they become available.
    • Question when applications and webpages ask for your information.
    • Don’t use the same password for everything.
  2. Prioritize security.
    • Just like physical security is always a concern, digital security should always be a concern.
    • Have a plan in place for a breach. Make sure your response is quick and decisive; share it internally within your teams and externally with your customers so they are confident in the duty of care process for their employees.
  3. Collaborate.
    • Digital security is a big and new problem, but it’s surmountable when you collaborate with others to identify the requirements you need for security. 
    • Consider finding a trusted expert to help your company navigate digital security. 
    • Be vigilant and selective in the new technology that you choose and in the partners with whom you choose to collaborate.
