Corona Virus, Emerging Cyberthreat, and How to make Remote work a Success!
Corona Virus, famously known as COVID-19 has taken the world by storm and generated requirement/need for remote work at the highest level. It has become a significant health concern over the past few months and could have a fatal impact on the workplace.
Common Signs of infection include respiratory symptoms, fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties. In more severe cases, the infection can cause pneumonia, severe acute respiratory syndrome, kidney failure, and even death.
The disease is extremely contagious and growing its footprint throughout the globe.
Most of the companies are encouraging employees to work from home, but how to keep your employees motivated and keep their productivity intact in remote work, that’s another challenge.
While providing remote work access, it does not have to sacrifice your employee’s productivity necessarily. We have many ways that help us to maintain an effective work-cycle even from home.
Here are a few steps that might help to achieve that goal:
⇨ Equip Your Employees
VPN (Virtual Private Network), can allow employees to securely continue their work from home by safely accessing the applications and data their tasks require through an encrypted connection. Make sure your employees are equipped with a good VPN and require communication tools that can facilitate this arrangement.
⇨ Network Security
You will also want to have a thoroughly secure network infrastructure to help prevent phishing attacks and other cyber threats. To help and mitigate worst-case scenarios like a potential data breach, be prepared for emergency data back up and disaster recovery policies and procedures.
Make sure your employees are on the watch out for any suspicious malware/phishing activity that could be a cybercriminal’s attempt at using the coronavirus as an opportunity to infiltrate in the network security. Make it a priority.
According to Network Management Blog Report:
Scammers have phished healthcare providers with updates that appear to have come from the World Health Organization or hospitals local to their area, but actually, introduce keyloggers into their systems.
Those involved in the medical supply chain have been targeted with emails referencing the coronavirus that install malware to steal information.
Ransomware has been introduced into consumer systems by promising recipients of email information about COVID-19’s spread.
Corona Virus is a scary and significant health concern we are facing right now, and it is capable of affecting your organization on a massive scale. But if you are properly prepared, then it will not interrupt your business operations at all.
