Social Isolation Puts Company Data at Risk

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to cause chaos for businesses, we continue to be committed to helping keep your data secure. To that end, we’ve compiled several resources to help you navigate this unique terrain, and if we can serve you in any way, please don’t hesitate to contact us.     

This week, we wanted to highlight a cybersecurity vulnerability that is especially prescient as many people work from home and practice social distancing. According to a study by the Better Business Bureau, the FINRA Investor Education Foundation, and the Stanford Center on Longevity, people are more likely to fall for a scam when they are socially isolated.  

Cybercriminals are already taking advantage of our new digital environment sending a flurry of phishing and other fraudulent messages meant to compromise personal and company data, and isolated employees are more vulnerable than usual to these attack methodologies. Therefore, in addition to preparing employees for this troubling trend, make an effort to reach out to employees, coworkers, and family members to make personal connections during this challenging time.
