Steps to prevent your organization from hackers

What is on the mind of a hacker? Theft? No, it is not the only thing! Destruction is a major thing. Hackers just destroy your reputation and you can never repair the damage done by a hacker, but you can surely take steps to prevent it like:
• Always stay updated.
• Use user names and passwords that cannot be guessed
• Apply network security.
• Install a firewall.
• Install security applications.
• Hide admin pages.
• file uploads should be limited.
• Use SSL on your website.
• Don’t use form auto-fill.
• Always Back-up your data.

Understand how hackers obtain data- then prevent data breach

There are some really good lists on this thread to help protect your organization from attacks.

The first method would be to find out how hackers obtain data. It can include phishing, which is one of the main ways of getting attacked. However, if you keep outdated software or firmware this can also give a hacker the opportunity to come in through the vulnerabilities that are not patched up.
