As the world continues to face challenges in dealing with the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, we are taking steps to provide some safety measures to our clients and staff.

As a result, Sharenet will unfortunately not be accommodating client meetings at a branch level, for the forceable future. As soon as the situation changes, we will advise you, our valuable clients accordingly.
The widespread concern around COVID-19 creates the perfect opportunity for cybercriminals to defraud customers.
