Expand your remote workforce, securely
Many organizations don’t have enough virtual private network (VPN) licenses to accommodate the increase of users, risking that employees will be lacking the access to business resources or will do them via non-secure connection while working remotely.
Therefore, security-conscious organizations should have scalable secure mobile or remote access solution in place (e.g., VPN) that can accommodate an influx of users (and the respective license requirements).
Review your business continuity plan
Organizations, SMBs and enterprises are encouraged to review their business continuity plans on a yearly basis. This should account for everything for communication channels, leadership, infrastructure, technology and more. Reference SonicWall’s ‘5 Core Practices to Ensure Business Continuity’ as a helpful primer.
Defend against fear-based cyberattacks
Cybercriminals know how to successfully capitalize on trends, fears and human behavior. Organizations should ensure they have strong secure email security in place to mitigate aggressive phishing attacks.
In cases where phishing links are clicked by employees, staff, partners and contractors, cloud application security, Office 365 security and advanced endpoint protection solutions are required to mitigate malware from compromising networks or stealing credentials.
Protect your many endpoints
Organizations need to be prepared for an influx of attacks impacting endpoints. A single employee working remotely could click a phishing link that could lock data via ransomware, steal credentials or gain access to the corporate network.
A sound security strategy for remote workforces always includes proactive endpoint protection (or next-generation antivirus) that mitigates attacks before, during and after they execute. More advanced approaches include automated rollback to return infected Windows PCs to a previously clean state.
