Keeping Your Business Safe Online: The MarketCentral Way
What's the News:
In today’s day and age, online safety is a much-discussed topic. Newspapers cover online security breaches and privacy pitfalls on a daily basis. This causes business owners to wonder: is it even possible for business information to be safe online?
The answer is YES. With some tips and tricks, and a little bit of caution, you can do online business 100% safely.
Basic Safety Measures
- Always choose a strong password for your business. This password should have a mix of numbers, alphabets, and special characters such as !, %, $ etc. Don’t use your username, date of birth, or easily identifiable information for your password.
- Make sure to change your passwords regularly.
- Be careful of what you click on or download. Don't click on any unusual looking email links or ads that promise large amounts of money or benefits. Don’t download any apps or software that you are unfamiliar with, or which look suspicious.
- Don't store your credit/debit card information on your browser.
- Look for secure websites. You can know a website is secure if it has https:// in the URL instead of http:/, along with a lock symbol next to it.
