Home Working is the New Normal…..But Are Your Staff Working Securely?
With home working, employees may no longer enjoy the protection of their well-guarded corporate networks across a small number of offices. Instead, simply put, there are now as many offices as there are employees.
This isolation therefore introduces new and increased vulnerabilities that Cyber-criminals are looking to exploit so they can try and attack & defraud home workers or use the home network to backdoor and seek vulnerabilities to attack the company itself.
It is now not uncommon for a home worker to have a direct connection to the Internet, where they will access popular cloud-based services and typically bypass any corporate security and defence infrastructure or policies. This can marginalise, or completely remove the protection any corporate monitoring systems may offer, leaving new threats and new risks undetected, increasing the risk of data leakage, fraud or theft.
