Internet devices have become an essential part of our modern lives—but they are not without their risks. In today’s enterprise-driven workplace, your online connection presents a huge security challenge that often goes unnoticed. You use the internet every day, but one wrong click and you have opened yourself up to all manner of malware that can spread like wild fire to any internet connected device, compromising not only your business, but also your personal life.
“We are pleased to have our members Scout Technology Guides share valuable information and experience when it comes to internet safety,” says Mike Klassen, BCCPA VP Communications and Stakeholder Relations. “We read the stories every day where individuals and organizations have been compromised by internet fraudsters. Scout’s insights could save you a lot of stress and financial pain.”
