As the we adjust to the COVID-19 quarantines, a number of us are now work from home.  And it can be a disorienting experience. On top of that, cyber criminals are using this uncertain time to prey on remote workers. In response, Vertical Solutions has put together a half hour webinar to sharing tips to keep you safe and healthy.

All of our resources have been dedicated to making sure that our customers have what they need to be as successful as possible during this COVID-19 outbreak. In addition, we have gathered more helpful posts and summarized each one for you below.
