Episode 4 speaker Todd Marlin authored a piece (with contribution from an EY colleague) in April 2020 entitled “How to guard against phishing scams amid the COVID-19 pandemic”.  The piece makes the following two suggesting, among many others:

  • “Utiliz[ing] your company’s security measures for suspicious emails sent to your corporate address.  For example, many businesses have tools in place that allow you to immediately flag any email you cannot readily verify.”
  • “Us[ing] secure in-house corporate tools such as instant messaging and collaboration sites instead of email when possible.  If you aren’t comfortable with these tools, now is the time to adopt them.”
