Ensure ERP Security with Trusted Software from Sage this International Computer Security Day

International Computer Security Day, which takes place every year on 30th November, was created in 1988 at the same time as computers were becoming commonplace within business and government settings.
These days, our world is undeniably digital, so cyber security and digital data privacy have never been more important.

As online scams and hacking techniques become increasingly sophisticated, more and more businesses are falling prey to cyber-attacks each year.

ERP Security

To keep your business safe in the digital world, ensure your IT systems are as secure as possible. One key system to focus on is your ERP software.

ERP software integrates many disparate systems, so if a hacker can gain access to this software, they’ll be able to gain access to your most critical business data such as company financials and private customer information.
Keeping your data safe and protecting your ERP security are vital for compliance and effective business performance.

Mitigate Security Risks

Your ERP data is incredibly valuable and commercially sensitive. A hack or security breach could threaten your business and its reputation, so safeguarding confidential employee and customer information is paramount.
Here are 5 further ways to mitigate the risk of a data breach and effectively manage your ERP security:
  1. Manage User Access
    Ensure user passwords are changed frequently and meet stringent requirements to safeguard data. Also, only allow staff access to edit the data they need to minimise the risk of a data breach.
  2. Always Install Updates
    Manufacturers build fixes to tackle known security vulnerabilities, so run regular software updates to download and install them.
  3. Reduce Data Exports
    Choose an ERP system that offers all the functionality you need so data isn’t regularly transferred to and from external software.
  4. Regularly Train Employees
    Regularly retrain your staff so they’re aware of the latest security risks and how to avoid them. Regular training also tends to reduce user errors which can lead to security breaches.
  5. Comply With Legislation
    Keep up to date and aware of any changes in privacy laws and legislation so your data storage facilities remain compliant.
