A 10 - Question IT Security Checklist for your Business


(If these processes seem too complicated for your business to handle, you may want to consider hiring outside help.)

1. Do you have a security policy that covers acceptable IT use, password guidelines, security practices, and procedures for downloading and installing new software?

2. Do you centralize critical data (anything needed in day-to-day operations) on a server and back it up nightly to a remote location?

3. Do you centralize important data (anything important to the business but not updated frequently) on a server and back it up semi-regularly off site?

4. Do you have a firewall and intrusion detection on all web connections?

5. Do all computers have working anti-virus software, and the latest system updates and security patches?

6. Are all modem and wireless access connections known and secured?

7. Do you have a company privacy policy and confidentiality agreements for contractors and vendors?

8. Is customer financial information encrypted and accessible only to those who need it?

9. Are paper files kept in locked filing cabinets with controlled access?

10. Do you do a periodic audit (every six months at least) of your IT security checklist?

"Although financials are a dry topic, the workshop leader, Ron, was able to engage the participants through feedback and working through exercises to understand the concepts. A great one-day seminar, packed full of useful information for anyone."
