Teleworking, “remote working,” or simply “working from home,” is a centerpiece of those efforts. While remote working arrangements may be effective to slow the community spread of COVID-19 from person to person, they present cybersecurity challenges that can be different than on-premise work.
If your business is new to these remote work situations, it is crucial to evaluate and ensure your infrastructure, applications, and data are protected—starting with the policies your company already has in place for cybersecurity and business continuity.
Evaluate Current IT Policies
Review your current IT security and similar IT policies to determine if there are any established security guidelines for remote work, especially remote access to company information systems. Some organizations may have policies specifically geared for remote work, while others may provide for contingencies in disaster recovery plans, BYOD (bring your own device) policies, and other similar plans and policies.
It is important to identify where gaps in your security policies may be hiding and cover any vulnerabilities early.
Below is a list of considerations and tips to help guide your business through new cybersecurity challenges your business may be facing with a new remote workforce.
Remote Work Cybersecurity Tips
Following Best Practices is the Best Defense
Whether working remote or in-office, following and integrating these cybersecurity tips into company-wide IT policies will help protect your business’s data while helping employees protect themselves from coronavirus through social distancing.
Above all–stay vigilant. Cybersecurity is not immune to the remote work risks from COVID-19.
