Did you know that October is National Cybersecurity Month? While the concept may feel commonplace as our world becomes increasingly virtual, we run the risk of becoming complacent and missing the threats right in front of us. Trust me, when the only Special Report the SEC has published in five years is on cybersecurity, we know it’s a big deal.
Based on their report, it is abundantly clear that the current remote work environment offers increased opportunity for breaches and it is our responsibility, as financial professionals, to take protective measures.
What does it mean to be working from home rather than the office? How do we make sure our network and hardware are as secure as we think they are? When our energy and attention is stretched between our jobs, educating our kids, and attempting to keep up with our lives, things can fall through the cracks—and new threats are poised daily that take advantage of our virtual vulnerability.
Our upcoming webinar, Overlooked Cyber Threats While Working & Educating From Home on Wednesday, October 28th will provide critical insight in to what you need to be doing to best protect your network and ultimately, your practice.
