Teleworking is a significant by-product of the pandemic. It has changed the workplace culture, and there is a small chance that we will ever go back to the cupboard-filled days of the past. It is no secret that many employees like to work from home. They are not the only ones who like teleworking. Computer hackers love it.
A slight scam
Organizations spend a lot of money building security walls around their financial information and personal data. At the same time, management can provide that protection to a teleworker, but it is for the employer̵7;s own information. As a result, an individual’s data can be made vulnerable to cyber attacks because the employee is working from home.
It is a relatively simple fraud. A hacker embarks on a phishing expedition. A remote employee receives an email that looks like it came from headquarters. Without thinking, the person opens the email and inadvertently opens a jar of worms. What was an innocent-looking correspondence is an attack on personal information. Anyone who does not have a solid anti-hacking software is in trouble.
The worst thing about these invasions is that an individual rarely knows that it has happened until the end of the month the invoice comes from the credit card company, or the bank sends a message that an account is closed. The victim can spend weeks and perhaps months trying to restore credit integrity and repair the damage. Group law plans are offered to help people deal with everyday legal problems. Countrywide Pre-Paid Legal Services is a group provider of legal plans, but we provide other products. One of our best is identity theft and credit monitoring plan.
