    Organizations responding to the COVID-19 pandemic are having employees work from home. Unfortunately, working from home is nowhere near as cyber-secure as working in an office.

    While there’s a rush to adapt remote work solutions, establishing secure IT systems and protocols in this environment require some thought. Beyond connectivity and network concerns, Internet of Things devices like security cameras and baby monitors present security threats. Now is the time for companies to look at their security procedures for remote access. All endpoints and connections to the organization-wide network need a security evaluation.

    Preparations are required to make sure company systems can support a critical mass of staff suddenly working remotely. These should conform to the standard Risk Management Framework: Detect, Identify, Respond, Protect and Recover.

    Even though there is an urgent situation, there’s no quick fix. Cyber Guardian has put together a white paper outlining some of the necessary steps towards implementing a strong cyber defense. Email us at hello@cgcg.biz or call 845-444-8273 x 509 for a copy.
