A security breach could leave your employer vulnerable to fraudsters and hackers.
We caught up with a security expert to find out what you need to know before you get your hands dirty.
How to stop a security flaw from happening at your company?
A breach could see your company’s data breached and its data stolen, and in the worst-case scenario the breach could lead to your data being used for identity theft.
In addition, it could lead you to lose all of your personal information.
To avoid a security threat at your workplace, you need a security plan to help you protect your information.
There are plenty of ways you can take action, but you need more than just looking at a checklist to protect your data.
In this article, we’ll explain how to prevent data breaches and keep your information safe.
A security breach is when someone or something accesses your personal data without your permission.
This can happen by:Getting in touch with your employer about your job or projectThey contact you in person about an issueYou let them know you’re contacting them about an incidentThey contact your boss about an eventYour personal information is taken or lostIf you don’t have a secure communications systemYou are at risk of data lossYou have your employer’s permission to share information with your team, so it’s important to have the correct permissions.
This can be difficult, especially if you’re in a remote location, where people won’t be able to access your personal details.
You should check the permission for any communication from your employer.
This could be a phone call, an email, a text message, a voice call, or even a social media post.
You can check the permissions for any information you’ve given your employer, such as your name, phone number, or email address.
If you give your employer permission to access personal information, the only way to prevent it from happening is to get the permission yourself.
If you don, it may be too late to protect it.
What do you need?
Security is a complex subject, and understanding it can be intimidating.
However, it can also be a very effective way to make sure your data is safe.
Here are a few of the things you should do if you think you might be at risk:Before you start working, you should have a comprehensive security plan.
It should include all the steps you need in order to make the data you keep safe.
The easiest way to do this is to use an online checklist, which can be found here.
Here’s what you’ll need to create your security plan:Your company’s email address to send your security reportIf you’re using a secure mobile device, make sure it’s encrypted.
It’s also important to get a signed copy of your employer authorization form if you’ve already created your security checklist.
Make sure that the company has agreed to use a secure communication system and to only use secure email, text, or phone communications.
Make an appointment with an IT professional to discuss the plan.
Make a list of all your personal files, like your phone numbers and email addresses.
Create a list in a document called a list for reference.
Make copies of all documents you’ve signed up for, including your security reporting forms.
Make note of the date and time when you sent your security request, and the name and address of the IT professional who will take care of it.
Set up a secure email account.
It might be tempting to use email to communicate with your colleagues and other customers, but it can’t be relied on.
Instead, you’ll want to use secure messaging apps like Signal and WhatsApp.
These secure apps send you an email and text message each day.
If your company doesn’t offer a secure messaging app, you can create one by using an online tool like Signal, or by creating a custom message app like WhatsApp.
Make notes about any conversations you have with your co-workers or customers.
This will be helpful in case you need further help in managing your personal documents, or to check if there’s anything you need them to know.
If there’s a problem with your security team, or if you don and you’re not in control of your own personal information then you need the right information protection plan.
If a security risk is affecting your personal life, then you should look into an organisation with a strong data protection program.
The more secure your organisation is, the better your personal security is.
