How Secure Age Of Homeworking

How secure is your IT in the age of home working?

  • IBM

According to the National Cyber Security Centre, the current pandemic has seen a significant rise in the number of attempted cyber attacks across all sectors. The NCSC alone prevented and estimated 723 incidents between September 2019 and August 2020 – A momentous rise from the previous year.
2020 saw a rise in remote and home working which adds to the risk for many organizations, who have failed to train staff on identifying threats or put in place protective software.

As the year draws to a close, we thought it could be a good time to discuss how we can help you protect your 2021.
