Do your employees ever access work computers, mobile devices, files, or email outside your physical office? If you answered yes to any of those, you have remote workers, and this topic is relevant to your business. Cyberattacks were up around 600% in 2020 due to the year's surge in remote work. Many companies had to transition to this new way of working relatively quickly and were unsure of the new processes or guidelines that should follow.
Adjusting your technology plan to include remote workforce support can help increase efficiency, minimize the risk of cyber threats, and set your business up for success -- no matter where you are.
If your employees ever work outside the office, your primary risks are access through unsecured wifi networks and lost or stolen devices. You also increase vulnerability from compromised passwords, phishing attacks, and other breaches that are more difficult to detect when workers are remote. Sawyer Solutions takes an approach that focuses on a cybersecurity policy and strategy implementation to ensure your workforce is familiar with the standards that need to be followed to protect your business best.
With modern technology, it's incredibly easy to give employees the ability to work remotely. Unfortunately, it's also easy to bypass security best practices that prevent remote workers from creating a vulnerability. Your business needs a plan that includes a cybersecurity policy, employee training, and some basic security configuration to get the best of remote work without exposing yourself to the downside risk.
