Protecting Your Flooring Business Against Cyber Attacks

Cyber security has been a hot topic as of late. Unfortunately, every business (and every flooring business) is at risk of falling victim to cyber attacks. However, there are security measures that you can take to protect your business’ information. Floor Covering News asked industry experts, including QFloors CEO Chad Ogden, to give advice on what dealers can do to prevent cyber attacks from happening, and what to do if they do fall victim to cyber vandalism. They suggested dealers do these six things:

  1. Have two-step authentication on devices.
  2. Educate yourself and employees on phishing scams.
  3. Invest in more cyber security solutions like firewalls, antivirus software, and intrusion detection systems
  4. Be diligent in updating your software
  5. Have a contingency plan in place.
  6. Always backup your business data and information
“The reality is these cyberattacks will be an ongoing threat. There is no silver bullet that can completely wipe out the potential for being victimized. Furthermore, no one is too big or too small to be at risk.” (Chad Ogden, CEO, QFloors)
