How to Avoid Storm-Related Scams

While Hurricane Irma has been downgraded to a tropical storm, it’s still causing plenty of havoc when it comes to fraud.

Next, having an incident response team that is trained and ready for the scenario of a breach. There are several benefits for having an incident response plan in place. It is an organized approach to addressing and managing the aftermath of a security breach or attack (also known as an incident).
