While the majority of companies sent their employees home to shelter-in-place and work remotely during the early stages of COVID-19, cybercriminals took advantage of the increased online activity and poor security on home networks.
The FBI Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3) has received 3 to 4 times the number of cyber-attack complaints due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Tonya Ugoretz, the deputy assistant director of the FBI’s Cyber Division, said that the “rapid shift to telework” has opened a huge amount of cyber vulnerabilities for hackers to exploit. Many companies came to find out that their data was vulnerable. Whether it’s a global pandemic or operating under the normal course of business, your company is at risk if you aren’t properly managing your information. How can you manage what you aren’t aware of, and how can you know what’s truly vulnerable if you haven’t classified it?
In this webinar, Sherpa Software, a leading provider of Data Discovery and File Analysis solutions, and Zasio, a leading provider of Records Management and Information Governance solutions, come together to discuss best practices in Information Governance to ensure your company’s data is properly managed. We share guidance on the best approaches to assessing, analyzing, classifying, retaining, and legally destroying sensitive data according to your retention policies. It’s important to manage your information early, before hackers do it for you!
