The rapid shift to remote work during COVID-19 has brought new kinds of cyber threats, making it even harder to protect your valuable data and assets inside and outside of the office. Are you doing everything you can to protect yourself and your business? Start with our proprietary checklist.

Even top-notch cybersecurity programs, implemented before COVID-19, are not enough. Remote work environments increase the target for hackers, and phishing attacks are up more than 600%, exploiting every new vulnerability. 

Exclusive insights you can act on

  • With a remote workforce, the chance for unexpected risks increases dramatically for many reasons, including:
  • Employees use “work-arounds” and personal devices when accessing or sharing private data and documents.
  • Multiple devices in multiple locations create new opportunities for cyberattacks—attacks that can trigger harm even after the return to the office.
  • Cyber criminals are targeting VPNs and other remote access solutions, and sending time-bomb malware in emails. What can you do? Track and prepare your next steps using our proprietary security checklist

Our efficient, comprehensive assessment evaluates five specific areas of your remote strategy, including device configuration, remote access architecture, remote authentication processes, monitoring capabilities and data storage, so you can quickly remediate existing threats and plan for emerging ones.
