Here are a few best practices for working remotely as a new wave of cyberattacks targeting those working from less secure computers hits during the Coronavirus/COVID-19 outbreak.
As cities and states impose social-distancing measures, businesses are sending their workers home to work, this massive, unprecedented shift to distance working brings with it a whole new set of cyber security challenges.
For instance, a lack of IT resources can hurt many organizations and when workers are sent outside the normal perimeter, managing device sprawl, and patching and securing hundreds of thousands of endpoints, becomes a much a bigger challenge.
For on-premises applications that require VPN connectivity, test and validate that VPN connectivity for higher utilisation than usual.
Next, employee education is more important than ever right now. Make sure your employees are not only up-to-speed with the latest information on the coronavirus and how to protect themselves and their families, but all the increased potential for fraud and cyberattacks following it.
