Why does remote working pose a high risk to corporate networks?

Personal devices used for work

Company VPN’s insecurely used at home

Weak firewalls and outdated software

Increased phishing attacks

Cyberattacks are on the rise and cyber-criminals are on track for a banner year. Phishing attacks alone have increased 600% since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, and are responsible for more than 90% of reported data breaches.

As of July, 2020, 16 billion records have been exposed, up roughly 400% from the same period in 2019

The majority of home networks are not secured. Cyber-criminals are well aware of this and are infiltrating company networks at alarming rates. 

Staff Training and Support

Staff training and support is a vital element in securing remote workstations: user protocols, company policies, phishing simulations and ongoing training
