What are the security controls your business must consider?

Running a business is such a difficult and risky thing to do. Aside from keeping your eye on the business growth you also have to take care of your I.T. infrastructure. And having a business means it is vulnerable to cyber threats and viruses.

Different security controls can save your business from different internet harm. We have listed below some of the controls your business must consider having…

1. Virus and/or Malware detection

All your business computers must be equipped with antivirus software that can detect a virus and/or malware attacks. The antivirus should automatically block the incoming virus and provide a report to the user.
