Remote and mobile working has been around for some considerable time, and is now increasingly popular. In our fast-changing world, the need for seamless collaboration in a blended work environment is greater than ever.
Remote and mobile working can provide many benefits for your business, for colleagues, customers and suppliers, but it can also create cyber-security and data privacy risks.
- Phishing email attacks
- Employees using their own devices for work
- Poor device security
- filtering, firewalls and encryption may not be available
- weak passwords and authentication
- Keeping anti-malware and antivirus software up-to-date
The constantly evolving cyber-threat landscape means that your IT security for remote workers must be robust. This can be challenging for your organisation to manage.
