Hikvision Work from Home Series: Tips for Recognizing Phishing Attacks, Firmware Update and More

 

In “4 Cybersecurity Safeguards in the Age of Work From Anywhere,” Security Sales & Integration offers insights into safeguards to prevent hacks and vulnerabilities, and boost cybersecurity.

“As we move forward with increasingly complex and fragmented business models, it’s crucial to fully assess and protect business assets from new and emerging cybercrimes. The goal is to prevent a wide array of online threats and attacks, including data breaches, ransomware attacks, identity theft, hacking at home, business, Cloud and hybrid Cloud locations and online predators. Work with cybersecurity professionals who understand the increased threats in our new, post-COVID world, and can increase security to mitigate risk,” said Paul Caiazzo, SVP at cybersecurity company Avertium, in the article.

Safeguards include:

  • Adoption of split-tunnel VPNs (virtual private networks) that enable greater scalability as a larger percentage of the workforce works remote.
     
  • Use of a cloud-based Zero Trust network to improve security and visibility into remote workforce device activity. Read this Hikvision article on using a Zero Trust network to reduce security concerns.
     
  • Monitor security for bring-your-own-device (BYOD), where employees use devices they own to perform work-related functions.
