COVID-19 is forcing many companies to speed up the timeline of their digital transformations. Until this happens, many of us have been left to utilize improvised work-spaces from our homes with unsecured networks on mobile devices to conduct business.
While all the attention has been focused on containing the spread of the virus, we cannot allow ourselves to ignore another potentially dangerous threat that can cause major harm to our businesses i.e. breaches in our online security.
