Use Restricted-Privilege Accounts
To reduce the impact of a malware infection, consider using restricted-privilege accounts for day-to-day work. Malware is only able to operate at the level of privilege allowed to the specific account, so making sure that the account you use for work has the least possible privilege can prevent malware from causing ruin.

Install and Maintain Anti-Virus Software
Installing a good antivirus is essential, but it’s not the only step you should take and won’t help you against phishing attacks or suspicious links. Keep your antivirus up to date, but don’t use that as an excuse to exercise improper judgment. Three billion phishing emails are sent every day. You need a comprehensive security solution in place to protect your company from attacks.
Enable Multi-Factor Authentication
Multi-factor authentication (MFA) greatly protects you from information theft. Each additional method of authentication provides an extra layer of protection to your information, like a castle’s layers of defense.
Update Your Software
Keep your devices up to date, including IoT devices. Checking for and installing updates is vital to keeping your devices protected from threats and exploits, because new updates usually include security modifications to protect against newly discovered exploits. Many devices check automatically, but some require you to manually tell them to check for updates.
Outdated software is a gateway for exploits and breaches. A management plan is vital to your data’s security. Staying current on updates helps ensure you get the latest protections, like bug fixes and patches. Resiliency is the key, you need to stay ahead of constantly evolving threats.
