DG Technologies and Cybertech during COVID-19

DG Technologies is here to help you during the COVID-19 virus.  Not only with special discounts on our products but to keep you cyber safe with CyberTech. Since the COVID-19 outbreak, there has been an increase of scams on the internet. Here are some tips to help you stay cyber secure:

Maintain good password hygiene. Employees should use complex passwords and multifactor authentication where possible and change these passwords frequently.

Update systems and software. Individuals should install updates and patches in a timely manner, including on mobile devices and any other non-corporate devices they might use for work.

Secure your WiFi access point. People should change their default settings and passwords in order to reduce the potential impact on their work of an attack via other connected devices.

Use a virtual private network (VPN). VPNs can help create a trusted connection between employees and their organizations and ensure ongoing access to corporate tools. Corporate VPNs provide additional protection against phishing and malware attacks, the same way corporate firewalls do in the office.

Be wary of COVID-19 scams. We’ve seen phishing e-mails, malicious domains and fake apps out in the wild already. Threat actors love to exploit real-world tragedies, and COVID-19 is no different.

Try not to mix personal and work. Employees should use their work devices to do work and their personal devices for personal matters. If you wouldn’t install or use a service while you’re at the office, don’t do it while at home on your work device.
