Filing your personal taxes can be easier than it used to be. Unfortunately, what you could claim last year may not be the same this year. I have compiled a list of the common personal tax laws that have changed since last tax season on my website. I have also provided several tips that can help you get the biggest return possible without manipulating your tax forms. You can learn how to get the biggest return while following the IRS guidelines so you do not have to worry about tax audits or getting a penalty letter a few years after getting your check.
Data is a major asset for most modern businesses. Protecting this data should always be a priority. While most businesses are vigilant in ensuring that their data is collected and stored safely, weaknesses in the transmission of this data make the information vulnerable to hackers.
Fortunately, there are some simple and convenient data transmission methods that you can employ to bolster the security of your data transmission activities in the future.
1. Email Encryption
A lot of the data transmissions that occur on a daily basis happen through email. It's essential that your business is using an email encryption service to protect your sensitive data.
The premise behind email encryption is simple. Instead of sending an actual message, you send a link. The recipient then uses the link to log into a secure email server. Once the login process is complete, the recipient can view your email message and any accompanying attachments. Your data never leaves the secure server during email encryption, so you don't have to worry about it being intercepted in transit.
2. File Transfer Protocol (FTP)
Many businesses need to send and receive data online. The best way to protect data being sent from one online host to another is to use file transfer protocol, or FTP. Users can edit, copy, and transfer files using an encrypted FTP system. Anyone who wants access to the FTP system must have the right credentials to complete the login process.
Additional data protection can be employed by creating a unique password for each file housed on an FTP server. This will ensure that only the person authorized to view a specific file will be able to gain access to the data.
3. Peer-to-Peer (P2P) Communication
If you routinely need to share data within a small group of employees, establishing a peer-to-peer, or P2P network for communication can be beneficial.
P2P communication works much like website encryption, but it doesn't rely on a central server to store data and information. Instead, all of the people connected to the P2P network have the ability to store, edit, and transfer data freely within the network itself. P2P communication is a great data protection option for smaller companies that don't have the working capital required to invest in a central server.
Evaluate all the ways to secure your data transmission before deciding which protection method will best meet your company's needs. Reach out to a professional who can tell you more about secure data transport to determine what would be best for your company.Share
