Remote Working Assessment FAQs
Gridware’s remote working assessment helps your organisation identify and mitigate security risks that result as a consequence of employees working remotely. An assessment can cover a wide range of security risks, such as exploitable infrastructure, systems and applications.
The COVID-19 pandemic has led to increased cybersecurity risks for most organisations, especially those who only began remote working recently. Cybercriminals have exploited the pandemic as an opportunity to step up their criminal activities by taking advantage of employees working from home.
This has been solidified through figures of a recent survey conducted by Tessian, which found 43% of employees admitted to making a mistake at work that had security repercussions, while 47% of employees said they’ve clicked on a phishing email at work during the pandemic.
Gridware’s leading security experts will assist your organisation in identifying and addressing a wide range of remote working security risks, including, but not limited to:
- RPD (remote Desktop Protocol) flaws
- Firewall misconfigurations
- BYOD (Bring-your-own-device) policy and control flaws
- VPN misconfigurations
- Cloud misconfigurations
- Improper access controls
