Stay-at-home restrictions spurred by the COVID-19 pandemic have resulted in America’s largest at-home workforce in history. And even as some states begin to reopen their economies, many companies are choosing to allow non-essential workers to continue doing their jobs from home. While these moves help companies adapt and reduce the spread of the virus, they open workers to a new risk—cybercrime.
With millions of American employees working from home—on personal computers, tablets, and smartphones—the risk for cybersecurity breaches increases. Types of cybercrime that have shown an increase during recent months include phishing scams, identity theft, malware, ransomware, and compromise of sensitive data.
While the fallout from COVID-related security breaches will still take time to quantify, the effects are far-reaching, and the volume of anecdotal reports suggests that beefing up cybersecurity now (for both yourself and your workers) is essential.
Fortunately, there are several tools and technologies that can help protect you, your business, and your data from unwanted access.
