We understand there is a lot going on right now. Adjusting to working from home, adapting schedules, sharing your new “office space” with your spouse and children and using new methods of communication is a challenge.
Unfortunately, there are some bad people out there looking to take advantage of the current remote-working situation by tricking employees into giving up login credentials or installing malicious software, including ransomware, on your organization’s computers.
Just as looting increases after a hurricane, cyber criminals try to strike at companies and people when we are vulnerable. COVID-19 is our digital hurricane. Email phishing attempts increased 667% in March alone. Now, more than ever, we need to be vigilant and provide our employees training to protect themselves and our company when working from home.
Wipfli’s security training and awareness partner, KnowBe4, has made available a free online training course to help your employees securely work from home. We encourage you to share this link with your employees.
