Cassandra Labbees, Member of the Firm in the Employee Benefits practice, in the firm’s New York office, was quoted in PlanAdvisor Magazine, in “How to Run a Remote Advisory Firm,” by Lee Barney.
Following is an excerpt:
Cybersecurity Is Critical
As the adviser community transitions to remote-based work, cybersecurity and protecting sensitive information should be top of mind, says Cassandra Labbees, a member of the Employee Benefits and Executive Compensation Practice at law firm Epstein Becker Green.
“Employees’ Wi-Fi systems to connect to the internet should be private and password protected,” Labbees says. “Should their system go down, they should not access public Wi-Fi. Instead, they should contact their IT department for help.”
It is also important for the lines of communication between employees and managers to remain strong, so workers “feel that there is a network, that working from home is not so isolating,” Labbees says.
