How many platforms and apps do your employees use? User credentials are portals into your network, and compromised credentials are the main source of breach origination.
Phishing is up as much as 667% during the coronavirus crisis. Scams run the gamut from offering help with receiving government payments to selling protective gear, tests, and cures. Don’t fall for them — here’s what to look for.
There’s never a good time to get breached, hacked, or scammed, but now would be especially bad. Verify the identity of anyone attempting to access your network or data by following these identity management recommendations.
In a pinch, you can use apps you probably already have to IM, make calls, and collaborate on documents while working at home. While often forgotten, Microsoft Teams and Google Hangouts can be easy and effective.
There’s a good workaround for organizations that need new computers during the COVID-19 crisis but can’t find them. Rent VDI, a desktop-as-a-service solution, instead of buying computers that won’t meet your needs later.
