3 Keys to Avoiding Cyber Vulnerability in GRC Processes
At the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, many organizations discovered they simply weren’t prepared to deal with the rising online threat level. Individuals working at home did not always have the protection measures of traditional work environments, and hackers exploited this weakness.
Companies and governments worldwide have witnessed a spike in phishing attacks, MalSpams, and ransomware attacks as cybercriminals capitalize on increased online activity. Our white paper addresses three keys to avoiding cyber vulnerability in 2022 in depth—but here are some of the highlights:
- User Protection
Your organization can take proactive steps by advising your staff, customers, and partners to be more vigilant and cautious when it comes to opening unknown links, emails, or documents. Additionally, companies should ensure VPN services are secure and reliable.
- Remote Work Vulnerability
To limit risk, companies need to address cybersecurity in the wake of COVID-19, especially for remote employees. The expanded attack surface area created by long-distance working requires that organizations reduce the likelihood and severity of cyberattacks.
- Focused Planning
Your organization can take proactive steps to fortify security without intruding on employees’ privacy. One option is host checking, a technology that validates individual requirements on personal devices before allowing access to corporate applications.
These practices, and others, can minimize the risks associated with employees using technology from remote locations. Read our white paper to see how your organization can take more informed steps that support GRC objectives while achieving compliance and mitigating risk.
