30 Mar Warning for Business and Organizations Using Telework Solutions
March 13th, 2020 The Department of Homeland Security’s issued warning for business and organizations using telework solutions:
“As organizations prepare for possible impacts of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19), many may consider alternate workplace options for their employees. Remote work options—or telework—require an enterprise virtual private network (VPN) solution to connect employees to an organization’s information technology (IT) network. As organizations elect to implement telework, the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) encourages organizations to adopt a heightened state of cybersecurity.”
As organizations use VPNs for telework, more vulnerabilities are being found and targeted by malicious cyber actors.
As VPNs are 24/7, organizations are less likely to keep them updated with the latest security updates and patches.
Malicious cyber actors may increase phishing emails targeting teleworkers to steal their usernames and passwords. https://lnkd.in/ecdifNZ
