Tips To Reduce Your Church’s Cyber Risk

As technology changes, cyber crime evolves along with it. Because hacking has become such a widespread problem in the world of technology and computers, it is now necessary for every church to take precautions on the internet. As with all other websites on the internet, church websites are just as vulnerable to cyber attacks.

Adopting Cyber Insurance

One of the best ways to prevent a website and/or data catastrophe is to utilize cyber risk insurance. This type of insurance provides protection against many different types of cyber threats and risks. As technology changes, your church needs safekeeping from new emerging trends in hacking and cyber crime.

Tips for Reducing Cyber Risk

You can do your own part to reduce your church’s cyber risk by taking your own precautions. These are methods of prevention you should always use:
<ul>
<li>Create complex passwords that contains numbers, symbols, and letters.</li>
<li>Use and keep your security software updated.</li>
<li>Host your church’s website with a reputable company.</li>
<li>Ensure that credit cards are being handled by a reputable processing company.</li>
<li>Never save passwords on any computers or inside the church.</li>
<li>Train each person who uses church data on proper security measures. </li>
<li>Never use an open network.</li>
<li>Encrypt whenever possible.</li>
</ul>

Don’t make the mistake of assuming that cyber criminals won’t target your data. If your church is connected to the internet in any way and uses a data system, it’s time to consider cyber risk coverage.

What Our Clients Have to Say

Since 1998, Nolan has been a tremendous help to me with both my auto and homeowners insurance needs. He has helped me navigate through the maze of insuring multiple cars with teenage drivers, as well as understanding the legislative changes affecting my auto policy. When I purchased my homes, Nolan analyzed my needs and made solid recommendations for my circumstances. And on those occasions when I had a claim, Nolan's professionalism, service, and accessibility made all the difference and reassured me of his commitment to my best interest. I am confident he will do the same for you.

"I have been an emergency medicine physician for 25 years, living in the Atlanta suburbs for 6 years now. Needless to say, I have an eye for detail and a HUGE respect for those professionals with similar attributes. On our initial encounter, Nolan impressed me with his professionalism and persistence. Most importantly, however, was his knowledge base and obvious competence. I have dealt with many insurance companies over the years, and equally as many agents. By far, Nolan Jackson truly represents the select few, in my humble opinion, who truly have their clients best interest at the forefront of their business model. I can recommend him without reservation; you will not be disappointed!"
