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.

Jackson Insurance provides personable, affordable, and streamline insurance. After a tree hit my house, I was dropped from my insurance carrier that I had been with for 15 yrs. Now considered a high-risk, I was concerned that I would have to pay astronomical premiums. I called Nolan Jackson and he not only found me similar coverage, but saved me over $450!
