5 tips to reduce your cybersecurity risk
Workers have been dumped into a world of digital everything, without time to gradually wade in and get used to such novelties as working from home. In fact, the increase in people working from home has created a new wave of cyber crime attempts, including a 350% increase in phishing attacks by fake COVID-19 websites. And it has focused attention on employee password “hygiene.” This is one area where a non-techie HR person or manager can help to educate employees.
