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.
