Practice good cyber hygiene. Security should be something that becomes part of your routine business. Use VPN, anti-virus and good security controls.

Prepare for the worst. It’s not ‘if’ something will happen but rather ‘when’ something will happen, so be prepared. Have backups, practice your incident response plan and have a business continuity plan so you are ready for that day. An example is Capital One, which did a great job taking an email into an incident and response.

Know your supply chain. Most cyber incidents happen because of the companies you work with, so have a good third-party plan and make sure that you don’t compromise on the security standards of your partners and that they take it as seriously as you do.
