COVID-19 and Security Best Practices

COVID-19 and Security Best Practices

The impact of this biological war, COVID-19, on our commercial and government agency customers has been immeasurable. Among a litany of concerns, they are facing increased systems and data security risks every day, because remote working has become their new norm. There are legal, compliance, governance, authentication and encryption concerns, among others.

AISN has been putting technologies and security best practices in place internally over the last decade to prepare for such a time as this — for ourselves and our customers. However, under the stress of COVID-19, some in the business community haven’t been able to do that. They are facing real struggles now.

Our esteemed colleagues on the cybersecurity and technology team at legal firm Sands Anderson advise clients of all sizes on data security obligations and risks. Today, we’d like to share their excellent blog, “A Practical Security Reminder for the COVID-19 Outbreak — Not Just for Remote Workers!”

As for this piece, do you like the photo of “the good ol’ days,” pre-COVID-19 — when we weren’t wearing masks and keeping our social distance?
