The COVID-19 outbreak has forced many organizations to change the way they carry out their day-to-day operations. Many have implemented a remote workforce strategy with varying degrees of success. Few have transitioned smoothly, others have gone about it suboptimally, and yet some others are still struggling to make it happen. Get inspired by our WFH security whitepaper.
The use of cloud technology is very prevalent today.

External attacks from hackers can hold the organization hostage for ransom (ransomware attack), and internal attacks can also affect your organization, like staff performing tasks they aren’t allowed to or accessing information they shouldn’t see, for personal benefit or with malicious intentions.
