Cisco Umbrella: Protecting Your Remote Workforce

In response to recent events presented by Covid–19 many businesses have had to ask employees to work remotely. With access to fewer resources than normal and with more employees working from home than ever, Covid-19 has changed the way we work and businesses have had to quickly adapt in order to remain operational. 

Due to the rapid changes in daily announcements, the level of preparation that businesses would normally have had to implement such a huge shift in work style was cut short. Security was one of the elements that came as an after-thought for most businesses.

But when employees are working from home, standard security housekeeping can be forgotten about and this can leave you exposed to criminals who are thriving on these types of vulnerabilities. Since the covid-19 outbreak, cyber crime has risen phenomenally and if your business isn’t well protected, the risk of being hit by a cyber-security attack is significantly increased. But the good news is, you’re not alone. We can help …
