Initiation
  • As hacking becomes a usual event, defending
    virtual assets has progressively become a
    critical issue for businesses. Computer systems
    are probably the most precious assets that
    businesses have. They store private information
    about customers, employee details, financial data
    and their business secrets. Since information
    technology is so imperative in todays business
    world, organizations should take additional steps
    to protect themselves against hackers.

Tips on how to avoid email hacking
  • So, here I have discussed some important steps on
    how to protect your email from getting hacked.
  • Renew your antivirus software regularly
  • Always keep the backup of your data
  • Make use of the secured Wi-Fi network
  • Manage your emails using dedicated email server
  • Educate your office staff
  • Change your passwords frequently
  • Make use of firewalls

Renew your antivirus software regularly
  • This may look like an easy idea, but many small
    businesses overlook to renew their antivirus
    software. Update and security checks should be
    run on a regular basis to make sure that your
    computer systems are completely protected.

5
Always keep the backup of your data
  • Data backup is significant for those rare cases
    when your network may get hacked. The hacker may
    spitefully hack into your computer and obliterate
    all of your data. In these particular cases, you
    should reboot from a backup disk.

6
Make use of the secured Wi-Fi network
  • People abduct wireless internet network all the
    time. It is as simple as looking for a network
    and creating a connection. Some hackers may
    prospectively look for networks that are easy to
    hack and think as an easy target.  So, you should
    not leave your network door wide open.

7
Use dedicated email server
  • A dedicated email server made for your business
    is the only one that is used for the purpose of
    business mailing. You have complete control over
    what is stored there, and dedicated server
    security is much improved when compared to shared
    email servers.

8
Educate your office staff
  • Knowledge is power and your office staff is
    required to know how much difficulty a hacker can
    produce for you. A good rule to overcome from
    this problem is to delete any message which comes
    from an unidentified source.

9
Change your passwords frequently
  • One of the best preventions against hackers is to
    change your passwords on a regular basis. This
    will help in stopping hackers from using a
    password repeatedly.

10
Make use of firewalls
  • Apart from the basic firewall that is
    involuntarily setup on each computer, you should
    install firewalls on all network servers. When we
    talk about networking, redundancy is very
    significant, and firewalls are no more different
    than it.

Conclusion
  • It is not fun to get hacked, but going through
    the above steps will provide you with a sense of
    security again.
