Ole Martin Refvik, Head of Security at Admincontrol, shares his top-three advice:

Management must take security seriously

Stop thinking “this won’t happen to me”, because anyone can be hit by a cyberattack. Develop a security culture and systems for protecting the company against future attacks. Security is a topic that needs to be moved up the agenda and right up to the company’s top echelon.

If you don’t have proper security systems in place, you are obviously much more vulnerable to cyberattack from outside. In today’s world, security is something all companies should take seriously

Adopt user-friendly and tried-and-tested security solutions

If you choose sharing platforms that give security the highest priority, you will have full control over all your sensitive data. You will control who can access the different documents, and can also receive reports showing who has been in to read them.

Train your employees

All employees should receive training in everything from creating secure passwords to knowing which documents can be safely opened and which should not be. It is crucial for security to become second nature to everyone in the company.
