So for us, one of the big recommendations that we make to all of our customers is switching on multi-factor Authentication, and of course strengthening passwords, and ensuring that the connectivity between you and the office or you and the internet is secure. So whether its VPNs, encryptions, so it’s a whole host of things. Some folks used to have it as additional Software or additional work that somebody else had to do. A lot of technology now has to build that in to ensure that their application is now chosen over another application because they can prove that it is now safe.”   Listen to the episode and let us know what is your biggest takeaway.   Connect with Christopher Reckord:   Website Facebook Instagram LinkedIn Twitter   Visit our Sponsor: Jamaica Stock Exchange   Email: Heneka Watkis-Porter    Support The Entrepreneurial You here fo US$5.00 monthly:   Looking for spiritual upliftment?
