SYDNEY, NS, CANADA – Today Carbide is announcing a free Business Resilience Solution to help business leaders navigate the extreme uncertainty of the COVID-19 crisis. The solution includes policies and procedures for securely working from home, cybersecurity awareness training, and a business continuity plan builder.
“We’re all in this together — entrepreneurs and business leaders are now faced with continuously shifting conditions. We’re each fighting to keep our teams intact, protect our businesses, and navigate our way through an unprecedented challenge. Today we’re sharing tools for free to help business leaders build greater resilience in their operations to weather this storm,” says Carbide CEO Darren Gallop.
As the situation around COVID-19 rapidly evolves, this web-based application is immediately available for businesses responding to changes and disruption in their operations. Businesses that are prepared for “whatever comes next” are more likely to react quickly, mitigate emerging risks, and avoid catastrophic damage to their organization.
Carbide’s free Business Resilience Solution includes the following tools and resources:
- Business Continuity Plan Builder: This tool quickly guides companies through creating and activating a strong business continuity and disaster recovery plan.
- Policy Builder: A Work from Home Security Policy and other best practice security policies are included in the platform, with tools to share with employees and collect sign-offs. This is a critical need for businesses with data to protect, as increasing cybersecurity attacks take advantage of fear around COVID-19.
- Awareness Builder: This free security awareness training prepares businesses against email phishing, social engineering, and cyberattacks targeting remote employees, which is a heightened risk to companies at this time.
To further support businesses, Carbide is also offering relevant content in an ongoing webinar series focused on securely working from home, business continuity, and disaster response planning. Businesses can sign up for these free tools at https://www.carbidesecure.com/solutions/
