As financial institutions have quickly moved to having employees work remotely out of necessity, many have taken a “let's get it working and figure out security later" approach – which leaves organizations vulnerable. Is your bank taking a proactive approach to cybersecurity during this time?
When it comes to remote work capabilities, some banks already had a head-start and others are just now figuring out how to let employees work from somewhere other than the bank's physical premises. Unfortunately, in any crisis like this pandemic, there are those who will attack weaknesses in the system - especially as this quarantine and employees working remotely could go on for the next several weeks and possibly months.
Cybercrime has seen a tremendous spike recently, as more people working from home equals less security for organizations. It’s not a matter of if but when a cyberattack will happen and to what scale. The good news is that there's always a way to mitigate the risk.
How can you allow employees to work from home and be secure at the same time? This session will cover the following 5 security tips for working remotely:
- VPN vs RDP - what is more secure?
- Multifactor Authentication
- Home Network Security
- Password Security/Password Managers
- End-Point Security/Mobile Device Management
Target Audience: Information Security Officer, IT Manager, Risk Officer, CEOs, HR Managers and anyone responsible for securing remote work capabilities
