Smart Consumer Series – Vendor Security

Not many small businesses do business these days without the services of third-party vendors, some of whom have access to your company’s sensitive information

How to protect your business…

  • Control access – Not everybody needs a backstage pass to your company’s sensitive information
  • Safeguard your data – Use strong encryption and configure it properly
  • Secure your  network – Require strong passwords: at least 12 characters, both capital letters and lower-case, and a mix of numbers and symbols
  • Use multi-factor authentication – Rather than relying just on a password, insist that vendors take an additional step, like a temporary code on a smartphone or a key that’s inserted into a computer
