COVID-19 is not the only risk with the ability to quickly disrupt the way we live each day. COVID-19 has forced companies and individuals to adopt and embrace new standards such as working from home along with social distancing. As we are focusing on the health and financial threats posed by this pandemic, hackers around the globe are trying to maximize on this crisis. Phishing attacks, ransomware and malware are spiking at very high levels.
At Lone Star Communications, we are learning and taking proactive steps by partnering with Defendify, an all-in-one Cyber Security platform that will assist us in advising our team and customers on methods to be more vigilant and cautious especially when opening links, emails or documents related to the subject COVID-19 and other current events. We are increasing our detection and alerting capabilities and making sure they remain functional while keeping an eye on the impact of having remote workers.
COVID-19 will change our lives forever with new work standards, new cyber security methods, cyber security policies and personal cyber hygiene. To stay protected is not just for the individual but a team effort to protect our data and our customer’s data. Each day through awareness videos, testing and discussions we are creating together a better human firewall at Lone Star Communications. THANK YOU TEAM !
