Research by Cybersecurity Ventures predicts ransomware alone will cost businesses around the world more than $11.5 billion in 2019. What's worse, this same study also predicts businesses will experience a cyber attack every 14 seconds by 2019, up from once every 40 seconds in 2016. So, what can you do to mitigate the increasing threat of cyber attacks? Here are five IT security best practices that can help.

1. Fine-tune your security strategy to address your business' needs.
2. Curb the cost of losing information using a data loss prevention (DLP) system.
3. Ensure compliance with stringent regulations to improve your risk posture.
4. Develop an intelligence-driven strategy to prevent advanced attacks.
5. Implement gateway security and multi-factor authentication.

Implementing some or all of these best practices will help you see the full picture of your IT infrastructure's health. Get prepared to fight whatever cyber attacks may come your way in 2019.
