  3. Use anti-virus and anti-malware software to protect against known threats.
  4. Use a firewall to protect your network and data from unauthorized access.
  5. Train employees on good cyber security practices, including how to recognize and avoid phishing scams.
  6. Regularly backup important data and store it in a secure location.
  7. Be aware of common cyber threats and stay informed about the latest security trends and best practices.
  8. Implement access controls, such as multi-factor authentication, to limit who has access to sensitive information.
