Remote working is a significant byproduct of the pandemic. It has changed workplace culture, and there is slight chance that we will ever go back to the cubicle-infested days of the past. It is no secret that many employees like working from home. They are not the only ones who enjoy remote work. Computer hackers love it.
An Easy Scam
Organizations spend a lot of money to build security walls around their financial information and personal data. At the same time, management may give that protection to a remote worker, but it is for the proprietary information of the employer. As a result, an individual’s data can be made vulnerable to cyber-attacks because that employee works from home.
It is a relatively easy deception. A hacker goes 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 can of worms. What was an innocent-looking bit of correspondence is an attack on personal information. Anyone who does not have a solid anti-hacking software product is in trouble.
The worst part about these invasions is an individual rarely knows it has happened until the end of the month bill comes from the credit card company, or the bank sends a notification of an account being closed. The victim can spend weeks and perhaps months trying to restore credit integrity and repair the damage. Group legal plans are offered to help people deal with everyday legal problems. Countrywide Pre-Paid Legal Services is a group legal plan vendor, but we provide other products. One of our best is identity theft and credit monitoring plan.
