Covid19 Coronavirus: Cybersecurity in Pandemic Operations

Managed Cybersecurity will continue during pandemic operations.

Continuing to perform our essential functions and provide essential services is vital. We are committed to continued support of our clients so that our clients can continue to support theirs. The stability of our national, and in fact our global, economy depends on businesses continuing to deliver services.

Since the threat to our organization’s continuity of operations is great during a pandemic outbreak; it is important for Cyber5 to implement our Pandemic Continuity of Operations Plan to ensure we can carry out our essential functions and services. While many organizations across the globe may be forced to suspend some operations due to the severity of a pandemic outbreak, Cyber5 is positioned to remain fully operational. We will resume normal operations once the pandemic has passed.

Current Situation

·       CYBER5 is implementing pandemic operations for business continuity.

·       Beginning Monday March16th, 2020 CYBER5 staff has been asked to work from home.
