Here are some important security protocols to consider so you don’t let security lapse during COVID-19.

Across industries everywhere, COVID-19 has changed everything. Now, as societies begin to reopen and the public starts to utilize shared spaces again, it has become necessary for all businesses and the public to adhere to strict guidelines to stop the spread or potential for a resurgence of this virus.

If you’re a business that has changed how you operate or are making your way back to physical office locations, it is absolutely critical that you maintain vigilant security protocols in everything you do. COVID-19 has taught us not only about the importance of hygiene and social distancing, but also that keeping our private data secure is a must.

Here are some important security protocols to consider so you don’t let security lapse during COVID-19.

Keep Security Software Up to Date

One of the most important defenses you can have in the fight against fraud and spam is software designed to stop malicious attacks in their tracks. Whether your staff is working remotely or you are having them come back to the office, you need device monitoring tools, strong security tools, and up to date patches as a line of defense against any new or emerging attacks.

Implement Security Protocols for Handling Private Data

It is critical to put security protocols in place and enforce strict adherence to the guidelines. At a time like this – when any business can be vulnerable to an attack – ensuring that all employees are following proper guidelines to protect the data they are accessing from their home computers or devices is critical.

Don’t Skip the Shredding Process

Paper shredding is a process that should never be skipped. Even if you aren’t under strict mandates to perform the function, it is critical that papers containing sensitive information are not left lying around or mistakenly tossed in a regular trash bin. The potential for a breach is far too great in these times.

We are your insurance policy knowing that private data won’t get into the wrong hands. With all of the uncertainty today, it is critical you have someone in your corner you can trust to handle the information destruction process is a safe and efficient manner.
