WHY YOU SHOULD USE VERJI

Today a number of accountants, auditors and lawyers have adopted Verji as a tool to communicate in a secure manner, and an increasing number of businesses are following suit.

Have you as a customer or client received an e-mail informing you that someone wishes to use Verji to communicate with you? In this case you may ask yourself whether you should go along with the request, and if this means you will have to learn something new – especially if in your experience e-mail until this point has worked fine.

VERJI REDUCES THE RISK OF RANSOMWARE VIRUS AND OTHER CYBER ATTACKS

What if you were able to communicate with the person who invited you without either of you having to worry what data needs to be encrypted and password protected? Verji was made to increase IT security for both parties and allow you to forget about the Personal Data Act and GDPR, because all data is already encrypted.

Computer crime has exploded in recent years and is now one of the biggest threats to businesses and workplaces. You can read more about this below.

This video shows you how easy it is to use Verji.

WHY AREN’T TRADITIONAL E-MAILS SECURE?

The Norwegian Data Protection Authority writes on its web site: «Unencrypted e-mail does not go direct from sender to receiver, but via a number of various hubs before arriving at destination. The communication may be monitored or analyzed ». This explains the reason why 91 % of all cyber attacks come through e-mails and why it is not permitted to send personal data.

The video below, with its simplified illustration, shows why e-mail is an unsecure channel, and should be replaced by end-to-end-encrypted technology such as Verji.

Has your e-mail been leaked?

To carry out data thefts hacked or leaked passwords and e-mail addresses are often used. On web page «Have I been Pwned» you can check whether your user name and password have gone astray.

Number of cyber attacks trebled from 2019 to 2020!

NorSIS writes that the Norwegian National Security Authority (NSM) saw a trebling of serious incidents from 2019 to 2020, and characterizes this as an accelerated digital risk. According to NHO small businesses are more at risk than large ones.
1%
of all cyber attacks come through e-mails, according to Deloitte.
1%
of small businesses exposed to cyber attacks are forced to throw in the towel within half a year after the attack, writes NHO.
1%
of the enterprises exposed to ransomware virus in 2019 paid the demand. In spite of this, 50 % of them lost their data according to NorSIS.
