Resource center for cybersecurity in a COVID world


Progress confidently

This site is designed to share useful information that can help our clients, their employees, and the cybersecurity community stay secure as work approaches evolve in response to COVID-19. Our goal is to allow our community to effectively work through uncharted times with confidence and peace of mind.

The information spans a variety of topics and formats to help you understand the implications of remote work on compliance projects, provide cybersecurity tips for companies and individual employees when working remotely and share the latest cyber threats and attacks we see related to COVID-19 and pandemic preparedness.

Due to the rapidly changing nature of the situation, we will continue to refresh the material on this site and share any additional information that may be useful.
