COVID-19 has had a dramatic impact on nearly all aspects of organizations nationwide – from employee safety to reimagined workplaces to financial hardships. But cyber protection and response during the pandemic cannot take a backseat. Cybercrime is rampant, remote workers expose vulnerabilities, and privacy and security regulation compliance remains top of mind on a state and federal level.
In this episode Alan Winchester, leader of the Harris Beach Cybersecurity Protection and Response Practice Group; Michael Montagliano, Chief Technology Officer of iV4, a ProArch Company, a full service information technology provider; and Michael Compisi, President & General Manager of Caetra.io – a Harris Beach subsidiary – discuss the data privacy and security landscape. They touch on how organizations should approach their cybersecurity strategy; the increase in cybercrime – including ransomware attacks – during the pandemic; and the latest developments with regulations such as HIPAA, the NYS SHIELD Act, California Consumer Privacy Act and the U.S. Department of Defense’s Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC).
