As the pandemic permeates workforces with many employees continuing to work from home, businesses must remain vigilant against heightened cybersecurity risks. Below are 10 important measures and reminders that can help mitigate these substantial risks.
- Encrypt Data and Tightly Control Access to Encrypted Data.
Encrypting data at rest and in transit continues to be essential to information security. Instruct employees to store work on the employer’s system (rather than on company-owned or personal devices). When working with third-party vendors, review contract terms to provide ample protection for your data.
- Deploy Secure Devices to Remote Employees.
