When using computer service offerings, it is essential to have reliable security measures in place to protect customer data. This includes installing antivirus software, switching from WEP to WPA2 networks, avoiding potentially illicit websites, working with banks or processors to ensure anti-fraud tools and services are used, and evaluating who has access to sensitive information. Additionally, it is important to change the name of the wireless access point or router, use encryption programs, and keep antivirus software up to date. To ensure the highest level of data security, it is essential that the same level of data security be maintained in all areas.
Companies should know exactly where the data is stored and its lifecycle. Password managers can track Internet usage and generate usernames, passwords, and security questions for logging into websites or services. It is also important to encrypt data before transferring it to the cloud or portable devices. By taking these steps, companies can protect their Wi-Fi networks from security breaches by hackers and protect sensitive company data.
