But the business owner is the leader and it is the duty of the owner to hire or trained the employess according to business needs.

Don’t blame only the employee “Business responsibility“
Every business or organization always have plan in which every member have the knowledge about the circumtances and situation that might happen in future. Create the environment where every member knows there duty very well, if there’s a critical situation then they might know what to do and when.
Many of us nowsdays heard about many data breaches in many industries and make a thought in our mind that this is the fault of any single member. Maybe sometimes this is true that a breach is only happens because some of the members done their work incorrectly which lead to a data breach but that’s not mean you blame only the specefic employee, i mean if it’s a fault of the employee or not the responsibility should be of whole business members with this thinking your decision making would be at great level and your employess never broke your trust bond.
It’s important to understand that leader or the owner is not just for make orders for their employees, leadres are also responsible if their employees don’t give the reports that they promised. You should learnfrom every single mistake that you have done in past so there’s no second mistake happen on same situation.
Employees should be trained according to Business Needs.
Training is the most important part in a business or in organization and these trainings are totally depends on the needs of business. If you and some major members are only trained to stop some major attacks and other members not then there maybe chance that you got attacked. If you own a company doesn’t matter how big or small is it, the fact is that every company or business owner have to spend a lot on these but what when you got stuck on any situation where you are not able to do anything. Here comes the part “Training” if your every single member is trained for any particular situation, means that they know at what situation what they have to do or not to do.
There are many business owners who make this mistake and got a big harm form it, but if you do practice and learn all ways to get rid of these situation then there’s no harm for you and your company. Actually you have to understand that your every single member in the organization is like assets you use on your business to make it powerfull and reliable for every customer who visits at your platform then there is not any harm or loss to train your employees even it is better for them also. They got a chance to learn something new.
Every member of business is aware about Cybersecurity.
In todays era many business are toally depends on the online platform to groe their business. Now the technology is way better than past and it will be upgrading day by day but that’s also mean that threat of cyber security, data breah and hacking are also upgrading day by day.
Doesn’t matter if you own a small business or a big one, all the business owners and members of it should be aware of the security threats so that they can handle the situations easily. If you are new here and new as a business owners and getting confused by these terms then i wanna tell you that hacking is not a new thing on the internet. It is from that time when internet or we can say world wide web working.
Technology is upgraded day by day and not only the tech, the guys who disturb them are alos upgrading day by day. Getting aware about cybersecurity threads will lead you to stop being a victim of online theft. For this a business need awareness of all cybersecurity threats and also the training to know how to stop them. Some of the well known cybersecurity threads are like Phishing, Brute force attack, Social engineering, SQL injection, Virus and computer malware etc.
Trainigs like Password Security is must.
There are so many security tips and training that every member of the business should learn. But the one that is used widely is password security, in every business one or more members have their private passwords for their particular work of the business but if the security of password is not enouh then maybe it will attacked by anyone.
Like i can gave you some little bit tips to secure your password from being attacked:
- Always create long passwords as they are not easy to remember even they are not easy to hack. If i choose a number that how much long my password is then it should be “8” and believe me it’s long enough.
- Having long password is not enough, you should apply more seurity layers to your password and they are as follows- use uppercase & lowercase letters, use numeric and symbols like (@,#,$,%,&). Using these methods your chance og getting an attck is lower.
- Always remember don’t use just regular or complete words in your password like your name or phone number because it’s just not easy for you to remember even it’s easy to predict for any hacker.
- Now you created a strong password with enough layers that’s not easy to crack but what’s next? Be sure to change your password regulary or atleast in 2-3 days. By implementing this rule there is no chance that anyone can crack your password easily
- Remember there’s a key note for you, never shared your password with anyone doesn’t matter who they are. If your password is gone in wrong hand thenmaybe there’s a chance of getting brute force attack by your won mistakes.
Make sure every member is aware (Phishing & Social attacks)
Phishing! do you know what actually it is in modern yuga – it,s more easy to understand if i say that in thses menthods someone can make you fool by pretending that they are from your bank r anywhere. Actually phishing is like someone theft you by making you fool, simply they send you any spam link – if you click on the given link then there maybe chance that they can get what they want doesn’t matter if they are lloking for your bank crdentials or your social platform’s. Just you click on the link and they get what they are looking for.
It’s possible that you received phishing email from any of your friends or colleagues and they try to ask for your help by saying that you just have to click on the link or to download a file. Don’t listen them ifyou are not sure.
Respond on Breach as soon as possible.
In many compaies, i personlly saw that many employees are not well trained even they don’t know how to react and when – if there’s any trouble. Make your employess tough so they don’t try to hide their mistakes, many times company loss occur due to single reason that an empoyess makes a mistake and didn’t tell any of the member of the business and the outcome is failure of business. Atleast try to take responsibilty thatwhat you have done so someone can try to fix the problem as soon as pssible and stop the data breach asap.
We can say it maybe a problem in leadership that any member of the business is not aware of security threats even they are not ready to take responsibility.
Explain every member that why these cybersecurity things are necessary and make your business environment better.
Check your “security level” at your own.
If you invested in cybersecurity to make your employess aware about the theft and so on, then you have to check is it worthy or not. You can hire outside team or member that do the job for you, actually they try to find vulnerabilities in your system and tryto check your security level. They try every possiblity to attack on your system and try to make your employees fool. If they passed the test and your system find perfectly secure, it means that you spend money is worth.
