Telework

Remote or mobile workers are the biggest threat to a company's data security, according to ComputerWeekly and the latest mobile safety report from the mobile connectivity company iPass. In a survey of 500 IT directors and decision makers in the UK, US, Germany and France, 57% of organizations suspect that last year their mobile workers caused security problems with mobile devices or even compromised the IT system.

Here are the highlights of the report.

More than half of organizations fear that their mobile workers have been hacked.

81% of respondents admitted having dealt with a safety incident related to incorrect use of Wi-Fi in the last 12 months.

 94% of IT security professionals say the BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) practice has significantly increased overall safety risk for mobile devices, with most respondents admitting that they allow employees to use private IT equipment in their companies

Does this latest report news the end of mobile worker freedom?

Not necessarily, as there are still people who do their best work on a laptop at home. On the other hand, the growing trend of remote work forces companies to develop requirements that must be met by mobile or remote employees to ensure the security of the corporate network and its valuable resources.

 So what can be done to ensure cybersecurity without sacrificing the benefits of remote work?

 Develop a security policy for mobile users

  • consider blocking all free hotspots
  • make the use of secure VPN connections mandatory when using Wi-Fi
  • mandatory device and user authentication
  • systematically educate your remote employees about the importance of cybersecurity and their role in ensuring data safety

 

Make a list of applications and other resources that are required for operation and are approved by the company for use on authorized home devices. Make sure the correct ports are set to ensure the security of the services.

 

Develop a security incident response plan so that both employees and managers know how to react WHEN it does happen (not IF it does, it is almost certain that it will happen).

 

For several years, teleworking has shown an upward trend, and rightly so, because such a system brings many benefits. However, it is necessary to pay attention to the growing threat to data security and make employees aware of it. In many cases, it is worth considering the implementation of an Endpoint Protection Platform (EPP) system.
