Whether you already have a server in Vietnam or are thinking about utilizing one for your business needs, security should be a top priority.
Server providers make it easier for you to keep your data and information secure by including features like DDoS protection and other solutions. You can take some steps below to ensure security for your dedicated server as well as protect your data.
- Establish a chain of command
It is a good time to set up a chain of command within your business and have protocols in place when it comes to handling a data breach or other type of security threats. Also, you should know whom to contact when errors occur, how to reset passwords and what other steps need to be done. You also need somebody to prepare a statement for clients if any of their data is compromised.
- Keep backups of data
Nobody ever anticipates a security breach or attack causing them to lose important data, but it happens every day to small and large businesses alike. Do not take any opportunities in this regard — ensure that you establish the regular data backups for your dedicated server VN. By this way, important data can be saved as a copy in another location and in the event of an attack or security compromise, at least you will be able to cover that data in stead of losing it altogether.
- Maintain your databases
Taking the time to ensure your databases are well maintained and updated as needed is important, in spite of what anybody may tell you. Specifically, you should ensure that your databases are protected against SQL injection. You can also want to delete any unnecessary data and cut back on the access that others have to said database. This’s important if you collect any sensitive information from users on your website. This’s also where certain database administration tools could be useful.
- Update software regularly
One of the common mistakes you usually make when it comes to dedicated server security is in failing to keep your software updated in time. When you use outdated software, it likely is not offered the security updates, patches and other protections that you have to keep your information secure. When you receive an alert that a new version of software is available on your Vietnam server, it is in your best interest to go ahead and set up it right away. If you put it off, there is an opportunity that you will forget about it altogether, so putting your security at risk. Using security vulnerabilities scanner is one way to stay updated on any outstanding updates.
By following these steps above, you can keep your server and data as safe as possible.
