In COVID-19 times, working from home allows to assure the safety and well-being of a company’s workforce and clients. Telework will go on for an indefinite period and could even become the new standard for companies.

Setting up telework in a hurry when lockdown was announced has raised many cybersecurity issues without having time to anticipate them. Working remotely can significantly increase cybersecurity risks for a company, in terms of logging in from home, transferring large amounts of data and backing up data, downloading software and intrusive applications.

Since the beginning of lockdown, companies have been facing an upsurge in cyber-attacks. Indeed, cybercriminals have been taking advantage of the situation and exploit the many security vulnerabilities. These cyber-attacks can be disastrous for the economic activity of companies. Often less prepared, SMEs are the most vulnerable.

The majority of cyber-attacks could be avoided through increased awareness and information among business leaders and their employees. This is why cyberwatching.eu, in collaboration with DIGITAL SME France, organises a free online workshop for SMEs to inform about the precautions to be taken for safe telework.

The following points will be addressed during the workshop:

  • Learning how to secure telework and avoid negligence
  • Understand how to use your wi-fi safely
  • Back up your files securely
  • Knowing the risk situations and the techniques of cyber attacks
  • Preparing for the return to the office
  • What can cyberwatching.eu Marketplace offer for the cybersecure work?

The workshop will be held by two experts in digital security, Etienne Laveau of Steel PC and Dominique Lo Sardo of Openfield. In addition, Deborah Goll (European DIGITAL SME Alliance) will represent cyberwatching.eu consortium.

The workshop will be in French.

DATE: Monday 25 May from 10am to 12pm
