Working from home is not complicated. Most of us do so now and again. Accessing an internet connection is easy enough, and cloud office suites and SaaS applications make it seamless to transition from working at the office to doing so on the couch in your living room. But most organizations will not have supported so many employees working remotely and employees may need a reminder of best practices when working from home.

    The cornerstones of remote access security will help organizations better protect their data and networks against threats and interception. Chester IT is here to assist.

    1. Re-educate your teams on how to safely access information while working remotely. Consider deploying multi-factor authentication.

    2. Think ahead about how to handle threats posed by data leakage or attacks. Ensure your overall security is sufficient.

    3. Stress test your infrastructure. Incorporating VPN or SDP is critical to deploying secure remote access tools. Make sure it can handle a large volume of traffic as your workforce shifts to working from home.

    4. Identify and label your sensitive data and make sure only the appropriate people can access it.

    5. Make no assumptions about previous data management. No one wants to accidentally provide the entire organization with access to HR.

    6. Audit your current policies relating to access and sharing of different types of data. Re-evaluate your current segmentation of teams within your organization so that you can rest assured that you have different levels of access that correlate to the various levels of data sensitivity.

    1. Review and strengthen the passwords you use to logon to remote resources, such as email or work applications.

    2. Be wary of clicking on suspicious links and only download content from reliable sources that can be verified.

    3. Choose your device carefully. If you use a personal computer, talk to your IT team about how to strengthen security by adding a strong anti-virus or security package to it.

    4. Make sure your home wifi network has a strong password and is protected against anyone from being able to access it.
