With governments, regulators and police releasing warnings about the increasing regularity of phishing scams and email interception, the Islands' business community is increasingly conscious of the heightened data security risks accompanying these uncertain times.
Workers and IT teams have found themselves implementing remote working practices in a great hurry, creating gaps, confusion and increasing the possibility of data loss and theft.
In addition, having no face to face contact, limited visibility of coworkers and unfamiliar work practices increases the the likelihood of mistakes, fraud, data exfiltration, and theft through social engineering or storage on insecure devices.
"As more employees are working remotely amidst the Covid-19 outbreak, we recognise the critical nature of keeping business flowing, without compromising on the requirement to keep data secure and locked down."
Lee Bosio, Managing Director at Vaiie
