Due to the pandemic, many traditional brick-and-mortar businesses have been forced to digitalize despite not being prepared for it. This has led to many security risks.
Even businesses that have a history of operating online have been affected because their employees who started working remotely have fewer security measures on their home devices.
We want to help you deal with all these threats that could seriously damage your business and find out what you must do to protect it.
