While the world evolves to manage the current pandemic, an extraordinary number of people are beginning to work from home, and businesses are making difficult decisions to keep their costs down. This creates challenges with respect to functionality and security and we want to share some advice on how to manage through it.
Most importantly, protect your business from malicious cyber attacks; we can’t stress this enough. Cybercriminals and state bad-actors don’t care that there is a public health crisis affecting us. What they look for are vulnerabilities and opportunities, and a large group of workers newly telecommuting is a very good opportunity for them. With your business already under stress it can be catastrophic to be targeted with a successful attack at the same time.
Here at EC we are doing our best to support the large number of support requests we are receiving at this time. We are committed to providing trustworthy IT advice to all of you and we take pride in that. EC has always been an operationally and fiscally responsible company. We can give you confidence that we will be able to operate through this crisis and continue to provide you unparalleled support.
