Cybersecurity in the Work From Home Environment of COVID-19: NELA Panel
In a time of COVID-19, people working from home use virtual communication platforms within varying home office situations. This raises the challenge of applying the right cybersecurity policies and procedures, which protects and supports but doesn’t hinder work. This also applies directly to the ambient issues surrounding employment law. Accordingly, the panel of experts that included Harumi highlighted current cybersecurity issues for the online audience members of the National Employment Lawyers Association in New York.
As Harumi describes the work-from-home environment today in a COVID-19 world:
Bad actors do not discriminate the organizations with 10 people from that of 10,000 people so regardless of whom we work for or where we are, we all need to be cognizant of what’s happening out there and be prepared. There are a lot of things that we can do in this field to protect our computers, data and work environment from being breached without having a big group of people working solely on it. It all starts with awareness and it doesn’t have to be scary.
Presenting alongside Harumi Urata-Thompson were Paul Jang, Legal & EdTech Specialist at Brooklyn Law School, employment lawyer Troy Kessler, Roseni Plaza, Executive Director of NELA NY, and Mark Rosen, Adjunct Professor at Brooklyn Law School.
