We are currently living in unprecedented times with COVID-19, and the good majority of us are working remotely. Were you already working remotely? Then you probably have an advantage over the vast majority who were not prepared, in terms of having the proper equipment to enable remote work and the strategies to prepare against cybersecurity threats. We already have a lot to worry about with event cancellations and postponements caused by COVID-19, but have you thought about what possible danger you could expose your company to unknowingly now that the majority of us are working from home?

What should you do to protect you, your company and your business partners? With so many of our FICP partners belonging to the financial and insurance sectors, they are already diligent when it comes to email phishing scams, equipment malware detection software, and other breaches that can take place while using technology.
Do you want to find out how you can best protect yourself and your company? Here’s an article that shares how you can protect against cybersecurity threats when working from home.
