As the global health crisis of COVID-19 continues, many organizations have instituted mandatory work from home policies for their employees in support of social distancing. But what are the risks associated with a suddenly all remote workforce? In order to support you in the race to embrace this "new normal," UHY cyber security consultants have developed a short 30-minute, free webinar intended to provide you with meaningful information about what your company can do to reduce risk. What are the risks?

  • Increased phishing attempts mimicking government agencies and local school boards
  • Malware hidden in maps and images on hacker-controlled websites that claim to track global COVID-19 cases
  • Remote support scams will be on the rise
  • Lack of available IT resources – IT staff were already in short supply and the current crisis makes things worse
  • Insecure Wi-Fi – home networks or public Wi-Fi
  • Insecure home laptops and other devices

The stress of the rapid changes could lead to risky behavior – everyone is looking for the latest news and this could lead to clicking a link that leads to a cyber event. These are just a few of the increased risks associated with the "new normal" of an expanded remote workforce.
