1. Ensure that your operating systems, apps, and security software are up to date. Updates often include important security patches.
  2. Review and strengthen your passwords. Consider using a passphrase or a reputable password manager to generate and store complex passwords.
  3. Enable Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA), as it adds an extra layer of security, requiring more than just a password for access to your accounts.
  4. If you’re travelling, avoid public Wi-Fi for tasks which involve sensitive business information. Consider using a virtual private network (VPN) for added security.
  5. Be cautious of unsolicited emails, especially those requesting personal information.

Many businesses have embraced flexible working, recent research reveals that both employers and employees expect it to continue long into the future. Collaboration apps such as Microsoft Teams have become the centrepiece of the digital workplace, allowing people to work from anywhere. This situation made people realise how important connectivity really is, and the enormous impact on productivity and growth caused by poor connectivity, leading to staff frustration and inefficiency. However, a good internet connection opens a world of possibilities for businesses. Here are the top three ways connectivity can help your business to grow and #BeMoreVisible:

1. Taking advantage of modern technology opportunities

Our world is now driven by data and technology so being able to fully utilise them supplies a definite competitive edge. More, technologies such as telephony or instant messaging are now cloud-based and require high-speed connectivity. This will become even more prominent with the dawn of Artificial Intelligence.

2. Increased cyber security

39% of businesses have reported a rise in the number of cyber security attacks in the last 12 months. Cybercriminals can do a lot of damage to your business by targeting your finances, however, they can also have a severe impact on your brand. 4G is extremely reliable, well tested, and has been proven in its capabilities; but furthermore, 5G supplies a more secure service so businesses know that they’re not just investing in better connectivity, but also improved security.

3. Increased Productivity

Due to a slow internet connection communication between applications, staff and organisations is not as efficient as it should be. Besides, 36% of hybrid workers report being more productive and 34% more in control of their work when working from home.
