How to protect your business from COVID-19 scams online

The coronavirus pandemic is the most important issue Americans are facing today. As of this writing, there are over 2,000 confirmed COVID-19 cases in the San Francisco and San Jose areas combined. This has forced many employees to take their work home to avoid the virus and slow down the rate of infection

Online scams are rampant
With the panic that the pandemic has created, cybercriminals are exploiting the situation to launch social engineering attacks to steal confidential data and money from unsuspecting victims.

Topics you need to include in your cybersecurity awareness sessions

Cybercriminals continue to steal data from unwitting businesses and individuals for their own gain. According to the FBI, the total cost of reported cybercrimes in 2019 was in excess of $43.5 billion. A growing number of cyberattacks also target small- to medium-sized businesses (SMBs), so it’s a good idea to regularly conduct security awareness training sessions for your employees.

How 5G can benefit your small business

Why you need a data strategy for your business

Not very long ago, many organizations didn’t know what to do exactly with the information they collected. But today, by harnessing modern technology, data has become an indispensable tool to improve business operations and become more competitive. Without it, companies today wouldn’t be able to understand their customers or market their products better.

Cybersecurity mistakes to avoid in 2020

Cyberthreats are becoming more dangerous every year. Cybercriminals are not only becoming more successful at stealing the data of large companies but also those of small- to medium-sized businesses (SMBs) because of their security negligence.

But while those threats are imminent, we at USWired believe that it's never too late to start protecting your businesses from threats such as malware, phishing, and denial-of-service (DoS) attacks.
