Cyber security is more important than ever during the COVID-19 pandemic. With many of us working remotely, this creates new opportunities for hackers. Hackers are opportunistic – so they have turned from sending phishing emails to focusing on some of the other tools being used today such as collaboration platforms. Remember – working from home may bring changes for employees, but relaxed security standards should not be one of them.

As we face a wide range of threats, let’s #BECYBERSMART and DO YOUR PART. Begin with reviewing the 5 Ways To Be Cyber Secure At Work:

- Don’t make passwords easy to guess
- Keep your software updated
