Cybersecurity For Remote Workers
Since being discovered in late 2019, the novel coronavirus (known as COVID-19) has sadly killed thousands and disrupted much of the world economy. Travel bans are spreading, major world events are cancelled, and a slew of companies are increasingly telling their employees to “stay home”.
Yet as more workers operate remotely, IT departments are struggling to ensure the same levels of cybersecurity the office usually provides. It is becoming clear that the economic ramifications of COVID-19 may also appear on a secondary front as hackers take advantage of the increased utilization of personal devices, lack of secure Wi-Fi, amongst other blaring vulnerabilities.
We hope this document can help guide your decisions as you and your firm face the prospect of prolongated remote work and its effects on data security.
