Remote Workforce Cyber-Ed
Do You Know The Differences Between Cyber Security And IT?
->IT is responsible for your infrastructure.
->Cybersecurity is accountable for your data transit security.
Including finding vulnerabilities on websites, email systems & your work or home network.
–>Employees Are One Click Away From Disaster At Work And Home<–
During the rapid escalation of COVID-19, organizations had to adapt to limit contact and person-to-person contamination. While some organizations have maintained a robust remote work structure for years, many have had few remote workers and restricted employees from working from home. And even for organizations that have supported a remote workforce, the breadth, and depth of remote work have dramatically increased. Business units and functions that have never been done remotely are now required to operate in a fully remote mode. During these rapid changes, security experts rightly ponder what new risks may be introduced.
Most experts believe businesses risk their company because of unmanaged employee devices and a lack of employee awareness training. Unfortunately, because of the COVID-19 pandemic, there was nothing companies could do but start as soon as possible in bringing their employees’ devices up to speed, along with employee awareness training.
Now, hackers have figured out how to get into organizations after COVID by hacking employees’ home routers. Hence, our course is more important today than ever because it will show employees how to protect their home network.
Per Ars Technica:
“A wide range of routers are under attack by new, unusually sophisticated malware.”
“An unusually advanced hacking group has spent almost two years infecting a wide range of routers in North America and Europe with malware that takes complete control of connected devices running Windows, macOS, and Linux, researchers reported on Tuesday.
So far, researchers from Lumen Technologies’ Black Lotus Labs say they’ve identified at least 80 targets infected by the stealthy malware, infecting routers made by Cisco, Netgear, Asus, and DrayTek. Dubbed ZuoRAT, the remote access Trojan is part of a broader hacking campaign that has existed since at least the fourth quarter of 2020 and continues to operate”.
