Pandemic Cybersecurity Related Issues and the New Normal


As Covid-19 quickly turned us into a remote workforce, cyber risk and the number of attacks increased exponentially. Hackers have remained on the prowl for the path of least resistance to a company’s systems and to expose vulnerabilities for executing attacks. What are your legal responsibilities in today’s digital world?  This question has become increasingly important as more employees are working from home but importantly migrating back to the office. This USLAW webinar answers that question and provides real-world solutions to help protect your business, clients, and confidential information from viruses, hackers, phishing, ransomware, and other threats.

Topics covered include:
• How to safely and securely manage personnel in a work-from-home environment
• How the transfer of personnel to a remote environment may affect your cyber risk
• Whether the return of the workforce to the office may bring other or new cyber liability
• Legal and ethical requirements for protecting confidential information, plus pointers for doing so, whether at work or the “home office”
• Telltale signs of phishing and other ransomware attempts
• What to do if a cyberattack is successful
• Insurance and remote workers
