Stopping a Data Breach Before It Occurs: What You Must Do

November 23, 2020

You've just learned that your seemingly secure customer data have been compromised. Your internal company data, like transaction histories and inventory lists, have also been accessed by unauthorized parties.

Suddenly, you feel a pit in your stomach, and you start to panic.

The reality is, for your company, experiencing a data breach would be a complete disaster. Breaches can impact you financially in the form of fraudulent bank transfers and order placements. However, they can also tarnish your customers' faith in you.

The good news? You can prevent a data breach from happening. Here's a rundown on how to prevent breaches at your company.

Let's get started!


One of the best ways to prevent a data breach is to constantly analyze your intellectual property for threats.

Monitoring can easily be done with software like Cisco Umbrella. This provides comprehensive content filtering as well as analysis enterprise wide.

In addition, encryption services offered by an IT business solutions company allow you to monitor your organization's activity. For instance, you can block specific websites. You can also track exactly where your organization's internet traffic is going.

With the help of encryption services, you can also develop custom policies. These policies will allow you to immediately manage your company based on your specifications. In addition, you can receive the latest alerts however and whenever they are necessary.  


With the right service provider's help, you can also audit your business's intellectual property to protect it against threats.

Through audits, your service provider can carefully assess your company's security encryption. They can also study other important digital vulnerabilities. Then, they may provide you with specific recommendations for increasing the security of your network.

Following a comprehensive audit, you can also expect full inventories and summaries of your company's site devices, software, and hardware. You can also learn the latest about any relevant licensing that you have attained.

Audits can furthermore inform you of the health of your business's workstations and servers.


Structured cabling services can furthermore help to safeguard your business's information. 

For instance, a service provider can build wires into your organization's structure to prevent unwanted tampering. In addition, they can set up firewalls. This can protect your company from dangerous malware and unauthorized access.
