OD Live with Confidence Staveley: Maintaining Cybersecurity While Working Remotely – May 8, 2020
You are invited to join OD Live with Confidence Staveley on Maintaining Cyber Security While Working Remotely.
The most common word of 2020 has got to be “Stay Safe”. As the world becomes increasingly dependent on the internet to stay connected and collaborate during COVID-19 pandemic, cybercriminals are also around the corner to take advantage of the times. The pandemic is providing new opportunities for cyber actors to exploit unsecured technology systems and gullible users who are new to working from home. It has therefore become crucial to apply measures to not just stay safe physically, but online as well.
Confidence Staveley will expound on this cybersecurity topic and share work-from-home cybersecurity tips that you can start practicing today in order to stay safe online.
The #ODLive series is part of our efforts to empower our users with the right knowledge and tips they need to grow and succeed in their businesses, projects, and applications for global opportunities.
