Are Your Remote Workers a Cybersecurity Liability?
Many of us are still working at home at least partially, and some companies have even shifted to 100% remote workers as a result of COVID -19. Because of this, hackers have been picking up their efforts to exploit remote workers as an easy point of entry into a company’s network. Remote workers must somehow access the company’s files throughout the day, doing this safely and efficiently is part of the ongoing struggle many IT professionals are facing.
Some companies are held back from performing safe cybersecurity measures because:
There is a lack of adequate training
There is a lack of cybersecurity prioritization by senior management
Adequate cybersecurity measures take too much time and is too much of a hassle
Adequate cybersecurity measures may appear too costly
The truth is that taking steps towards adequate cybersecurity practices is not always a burden financially and should be at the top of the priority list in order to prevent data loss and unwanted downtime.
