Tips For Keeping Online Business Accounts Secure

At Teal Marketing, we are constantly managing and securing sensitive credentials for our clients. However, as a business owner, are you doing everything you can to make account security a priority? After all, the average business owner has almost 100 different online accounts that are password protected. 

Security is important for online business accounts as they contain sensitive information such as financial details, customer data, and intellectual property. Without proper security measures, these accounts are vulnerable to cyber attacks such as hacking, phishing, and malware. A breach of security can not only result in financial losses but also damage the reputation and trust of the business. Therefore, investing in strong security measures such as two-factor authentication, regular password updates, and encryption is essential for protecting online business accounts.


Here are a few general tips to keep in mind: 

  1. Use strong, long, and unique passwords for all accounts.
  2. Keep all software and operating systems up to date.
  3. Use antivirus and anti-malware software.
  4. Train employees on how to identify and avoid phishing scams.
  5. Limit employee access to sensitive data.
  6. Use encryption to protect sensitive data.
  7. Regularly back up important data.
  8. Have a plan in place for responding to a cyber-attack or data breach.
