The coronavirus pandemic has changed the landscape of work offices around the country. Many jobs have moved to the home. At least the ones that can. However, the stay-at-home orders will slowly come to an end and social distancing measures will be implemented. This will be a tricky situation for many companies. How many people do you allow back in the office? Is anybody staying at home? What about the breakroom and meetings? These are decisions every company is going to have to make. Including right here at MSEDP.
Our IT Services Can Help You Continue To Work From Home
Twitter has recently come out and stated that some of their employees will be working remotely on a permanent basis moving forward. A Twitter spokesperson recently said the following, "We were uniquely positioned to respond quickly and allow folks to work from home given our emphasis on decentralization and supporting a distributed workforce capable of working from anywhere. The past few months have proven we can make that work."
Not every company is Twitter and we get that, but this time of working remotely can be used as a positive. Companies can evaluate who needs to work in the office when they slowly reopen and who can remain at home. Either for an extended amount of time or, like Twitter, on a more permanent basis. There are benefits to having fewer people in the office, such as less commuter traffic. And with fewer people in the office, there is less of a likelihood of any sort of sickness being passed around. Not just COVID-19. So everyone in the office can work in a healthier environment.

Cybercriminals Are Making The Most of This Crisis
Unfortunately, due to these unusual circumstances, cybercriminals are taking advantage of companies. So it is best to be on alert and use caution. Employees unfamiliar with remote work are the target demo. Since the internet is abuzz with coronavirus, cybercriminals have used it as an opportunity to pounce on novices. Hackers selling other hackers COVID-19 scam “kits” that are complete with fraudulent email templates used to target workers at home.
“Hackers are trying to exploit this moment in a time when everyone’s forced online,” said Dave Baggett, CEO of cybersecurity firm INKY, which is using artificial intelligence to track a “massive explosion” in corporate email attacks. These attacks actually began in late February, but have skyrocketed this week. MSEDP is aware of these issues and can help you safely navigate these issues.
Be On The Lookout For Phishing Scams
Phishing scams are the most prevalent online attack during this epidemic. A phishing scam is when emails appear to be sent from an employer or another official organization, but is really an attempt to get recipients to click on a link and input credentials and personal information. Hackers then use that information to access the corporate network, an individual’s personal accounts, or download ransomware on a device requiring users or businesses to pay sometimes staggering amounts of ransom in order to regain access.
So it is important to be safe during this time. MSEDP is there for you any way you need it. Our cybersecurity services are of the highest quality and will ensure that you are working remotely in the safest manner possible.
