Coronavirus is leading to thousands of workers staying home and work remotely. If you’re doing this, is your company’s data protected?
The IT consultants from WareGeeks Solutions sees this as a trend. WareGeeks Solutions’ owner, Seth Melendez says, “For many, the infrastructure is not there for the remote workforce and cybersecurity protocols are low to nonexistent.”
Melendez cautions, “Be careful in the rush to decentralize. Remote workers leave your company vulnerable to cybersecurity risks whether from a malicious employee, undertrained employee or nonexistent data privacy protocols.”
Coronavirus Increased Potential For Data Breaches
Zoho recently released a new suite of software for the newly-remote workforce.
How safe is sensitive company data? What cyber security measures are in place for staff who are scattered and using their own wifi and devices to access company data?
As IT consultants who specialize in cybersecurity, data protection and business continuity we understand the need to protect data. We also hope business owners have taken security infrastructure into Coronavirus consideration, that they have taught now-remote staff how to protect the company’s sensitive information and avoid phishing and ransomware scams.
If you’re sending your workforce home for Coronavirus and aren’t certain whether your company’s information is properly protected, let’s schedule a 15-minute consultation to assess your company’s risk.
