Edgescan COVID_19 Response

March 24, 2020 / general , news / Comments (0)

 

The Irish government has taken the unprecedented step of closing all schools, universities, public gatherings and childcare facilities, in response to the evolving Covid-19 pandemic. They have also asked that businesses adopt remote working practices where possible.

 

Here at Edgescan, we already operate with a highly mobile workforce and can fully function with our entire staff working remote. We have a robust BC/DR plan and it is business as usual at Edgescan, we are fully operational and expect to remain so under the current restrictions and any planned escalation. We have also offered assistance to national agencies to assist in the fight against Covid-19.

 

Remote Working
We have seamlessly rolled our remote working policy for the protection of our team and clients. Our team have the necessary equipment, can access our network and can remotely communicate with clients and each other in order to carry out their roles.

Meetings
Our offices are closed and due to current public health guidelines we are not travelling to client offices for meetings or consultancy. All operations are now carried out remotely and have been reorganised by the key personnel.

We want to help you and your organisation through this crisis.  Please reach out if you need help or advice on how to maintain your security posture.  Many of our clients have had to send staff home and may be exposed. As an MSSP we can help fill the gaps.
