What is Security Hygiene

From March 2022

Security hygiene is the day-to-day practices that keep your data secure.


Essentially, security protocols are like personal hygiene. It is consistent maintenance required to keep your data safe. Like personal hygiene, it is a reoccurring, maintained effort.


Keeping consistent with updates for security patches, using password banks, and being wary of phishing are examples of good security hygiene. If you have questions about your business’ security hygiene, don’t be afraid to contact us.
