Remote work security remains a challenge as many employees plan to continue working from home, even after the COVID-19 pandemic.
A security breach can bring down a global business without hesitation. So when companies have employees spread over a wide area, it’s even more essential to set up proper security measures.
Andreas Rivera is a marketing content writer for eFileCabinet. He said falling back on endpoint security to take care of all attempts at causing harm is a big mistake.
“Phishing with spoofed email addresses is one of the biggest causes of fraud and unauthorized access to business’ networks,” he said. Train employees to “look out for the signs of fraud,” he added.
Organizations are rethinking their IT environments to account for employees connecting from home networks with a variety of devices, Rivera said.
“Endpoint security is becoming more complicated and criminals are getting more creative with how they can defraud companies and their employees,” he said.
You can avoid many mistakes with common-sense security awareness, Rivera said. That includes looking for signs of attempted fraud and instituting strong authentication practices such as multifactor authentication (MFA).
These are practices that have minimal impact on productivity, he said. However, they go a long way toward protecting businesses and their employees, he said.
