Loop was quick to react to the cybersecurity challenges of COVID-19, which is now upon us in a significant way.
We have developed a range of programs to deal with the following increased risks we are observing:
On Thursday 26th March we ran a live simulated attack on a remote worker. During the simulation we explained to our target audience (company employees and end users) just how devastating cyber threats can be on them personally and the companies they work for - all during the one attack.
Following the simulation (approx 20 minutes) we then walk employees through the top cyber-security vulnerabilities when working remotely and what they can do to protect themselves and their company.
This training has been recorded so that our customers and prospective customers can share this with their employees.
Email us via the link below and we will send you a copy of the recorded training:

In this session we talk about the changes to the risk levels organisations are dealing with, what some of the new threats are - and how you can help your company:
During this period of uncertainty, Loop Secure has enacted our pandemic plan and business continuity plan.
Since our core business runs in cloud and SaaS environments, Loop Secure has been designed for continuity and can continue to operate from any location.
From the 9th of March 2020 all employees were encouraged to work from home. Our SOC was mandated to work from home from the 16th of March, and from the 23rd March the entire company was mandated to work from home.
All interstate and overseas travel has also been cancelled until the end of April and this date will be reviewed fortnightly. For all services we provide, Loop has multiple backup resources to ensure continuity in a scenario where Loop employees contract COVID-19 and are unable to continue working.
We have also implemented procedures to ensure that all work can be delivered remotely - including internal penetration testing.
Loop staff have received updated Security Awareness Training to remind them of their obligations for handling confidential information remotely. This is detailed in our Acceptable Use Policy and Data Handling Policy which has been aligned to ISO27001.
