The unprecedented amount of people working remotely has created its own hurdles in the tech world, including an increase in cyber attacks, hacking, and phishing. Leslie McCarthy of NFP Property & Casualty Insurance Services, Inc., caught us up to speed in our morning meeting this week, helping us understand some of the needs that are becoming prevalent as more and more time is spent working remotely.
Employers and companies have much more control over security and response time when employees are working in the office, and are facing new challenges in trying to set employees up to work securely, and stay connected while working remotely. Little things, like multiple logins, can increase the chances of a security issue, and as everything becomes increasingly digital, receiving a higher quantity of emails, a strain in standard protocols, and an increase in phone calls all raise their own risks.
Training on cyber security has never been more important than it is today, and is something employers should make a priority to reduce the amount of risk that their employees come across on a daily basis.
Leslie is an extremely experienced Property and Casualty insurance professional, with a staggering 38 year history of working in the insurance industry. She is passionate about helping Business Owners and their Senior Management Teams to provide excellent insurance portfolios specific to their individual exposures and needs, and to help them mitigate risk and build their company's success.
Leslie is skilled in Contract Negotiation, Leadership, Customer Service, Risk Man-agement and Strategic Planning, and is a Blue Ribbon Graduate from the Aetna School for Agents and Certified Insurance Consultant (CIC).
