Following the government announcement regarding Covid 19 over the weekend, considerable changes have taken place and restrictions have been implemented and are being policed daily. As such Intuity has now been moved from their status as an essential service to that of a “Business that can only offer emergency call out delivery services”.
We are thus, adhering to the guidelines and our team who work with “Essential Services” clients will still be available to provide services and solutions as required; however, we will be working at a scaled back level. We ask for your patience at this time. Our team will be making direct contact with all clients in the coming days and weeks to ensure that you are heard and looked after as best we can under the circumstances.
Should you require anything at this time, we suggest you use the following modes of communication :
For Training, email: firstname.lastname@example.org
For Sales, email : email@example.com
Since the Intuity Incident Response Team activated our Business Continuity Plan earlier in the month, we have continued to act in line with our ISO 27001 information security standard which we take very seriously. At Intuity.the health and well-being of our team onsite and on the road and of our clients remain our primary concern. As such, much of our team are now working remotely using cloud systems and remote access solutions and will continue to be available to provide support, training and other key IT services and solutions to our clients in the coming days and weeks ahead.

Remember to be vigilant
It is important to remember that at this time of vulnerability and distraction it is important to remain vigilant and on the lookout for phishing attacks and malware campaigns that may use the coronavirus as a vehicle for entry. See this recent blog from Malwarebytes highlighting incidents of coronavirus scams.
