How to Work Securely While Working Remotely

The cyber threat landscape and the ways you can protect your business are rapidly changing, especially within the past few weeks. Threats in the form of malware, ransomware, phishing and social media scams have ramped up since the onset of COVID-19. 

With so many people working remotely, the public is more dependent than ever on digital tools. That, paired with increased fear and uncertainty, has created the perfect storm for hackers and scammers. The security and confidence an office setting provides to your business’s network is now open to malicious activity that is as difficult to deal with as the coronavirus itself. 

How can businesses be proactive against these threats? Kevin Graham and Katherine McConahy of Peak I.T. hosted a free webinar with The Business Journal, providing a blueprint to help make sure your network and data are safe and secure.  

This webinar provides an overview of the current cyber threat landscape, plus effective ways to protect against the rising threat attacks that can come with working remotely. Topics covered include:

  • The Evolution of Cybercrime: Why is this happening? 
  • Prime Targets: Who is this happening to?
  • Threat Vectors: How do attackers get in?
  • Your Role: How can you protect your network?
  • Resources: Where can you learn more about cybersecurity?
