FixMeStick HQ: Our Go-To Cyber Security Practices

Our digital reality requires everyone contribute to Online Safety at Work and be #CyberAware, which is this week’s theme for National Cyber Security Awareness Month. Here at FixMeStick HQ we use a few different programs to make sure our business data remains safe and secure. Want to be cyber secure like us? Keep reading!

  1. Passwords – they’re complex and updated often plus all our accounts have two factor authentication (2FA) for an added layer of security!
    • Our go to password manager is Dashlane so we know our passwords are complex, unique, and updated regularly.
    • 2-factor-authentication requires that when you enter a password, you are prompted for an additional code that is generated on a use-by-use basis either through email or the Google Authenticator app. This way the portal knows it’s really you. 
  2. Antivirus – all our computers have McAfee Total Protection installed so when we’re online we aren’t concerned about malicious attacks or unsafe downloads and attachments. McAfee is our go-to antivirus to protect us in real-time.
  3. FixMeStick – we have reminders set every month to scan our computers, so every computer in our office gets a regular deep clean.
  4. Updates – viruses are looking for tech flaws to exploit so we always update our devices and use the latest technological patches to protect our machines.
