    Personal and Project Security Measures to stay safe

    Igor Bagayev


    For a company like ours that deals with dozens of projects, takes care of numerous teams, and maintains hundreds of simultaneous operational processes, efficient security policy and measures are a matter of survival without any exaggeration.

    At Vilmate, we’ve always considered it as one of our major duties to remind the staff about all the possible digital threats, informational hygiene, and the need to follow basic security standards inside the projects.

    Today, with the help of our CTO, Igor Bagayev, we can share some short guidelines regarding personal and corporate security measures that may safeguard anyone from financial or reputational loss, data breaches, and, ultimately, loss of trust.

    Even though the topic may seem trivial and people are becoming more literate in handling their personal information and digital identities, the numbers show that the volume of threats is tremendously high.

    Security numbers

    Among the most common troubles, especially with the development of AI bots, untraceable crypto wallets, and the risk of a typical human error, phishing attacks and ransomware are at the top of the list. Without being cautious, they may lead to unfortunate outcomes.

    • System Damage
    • Data Theft
    • Espionage
    • Botnets
    • Ransom Demands
    • Gaining access to cloud services

    As for the Personal Security Practices, things are not that difficult actually. If you just follow these 6 simple rules below, you’ll be able to reduce the risk of being caught off guard almost to zero.

    1. Strong passwords (upper/lower case letters, symbols, numbers, etc.)
    2. DIFFERENT strong passwords for each service
    3. Reliable Password Managers can help
    4. Use Two-Factor Authentication (2FA)
    5. Don’t hesitate with Software Updates
    6. Encrypt your devices where possible

    Project Security Practices require more responsibility and caution, since not only one individual is involved. Time and experience show that sticking to these practices is rewarded by the absence of bad news. When talking about security - if nothing happens, you’re on the right path.

    To ensure the security of web applications and data, adopt a comprehensive approach involving encryption, proper server and client application configuration, and regular backups. Additionally, separate your work and personal spaces to prevent potential overlap or compromise of sensitive information.

    Safeguarding both these spaces is crucial, as your personal data requires protection just as much as your professional data. By prioritizing security, you can effectively defend against fraudsters and other threats.

      “I’m looking forward to keep on working with Vilmate”

      A great technical team and a great partner we’ve been lucky to come across. We have been working together for many years and I’m looking forward to keep on working with Vilmate...

      They are “our team” – not “Vilmate's team” and I like that a lot!
