Security for Remote Workers
Is your business prepared for your team to work from home long-term?
An increasing number of employees now work remotely at least one day a week. As a result, more and more of your business is being conducted off-network, and outside the reach of your traditional security tools.
Phishing, malware, and ransomware represent some of the most serious threats to a business’s security. Your employees are more vulnerable to all of this threats when they are outside of your secure perimeter.
It’s important that you consider specialist security for remote workers and, as with all cyber security, a layered approach is required.
You should ensure all remote workers have Multi-Factor Authentication, alongside endpoint protection such as commercial grade anti-virus, preferably with Advanced Threat Protection.
You should also strongly consider DNS-level protection and content filtering. This protects even when your user is outside of the network, without requiring a VPN.
Staff must be given clear policies and guidance. From taking simple steps such as not connecting to public Wi-Fi, to understand how to configure a home router correctly. It is even more important that remote workers understand threats and are fully trained in cyber security. Phishing simulation and cyber awareness training should form part of your defences.
You need to evaluate the risks and understand the technology your staff are using to do their work at home. Then specialist, bespoke security for remote workers is required. Designing this starts with a Cyber Security Assessment. We will undertake this FREE Of Charge.
