With the COVID-19 virus nearly extinguished from our shores New Zealand businesses need to be careful they are not exposed to another nasty threat – cyber intrusions.

Most kiwi businesses had to rapidly redeploy staff to work from home and many have drawn on quickly acquired IT services to accommodate this move. These actions can potentially expose businesses to cyber threats through inappropriate data handling, the use of unsecured devices and a lack of governance with data services.
