In today’s world, remote work is not just a reality, but a necessity. Undoubtedly, allowing our employees to work remotely, especially in larger numbers, poses a greater risk for our credit union networks. If an attacker identifies an exploitable vulnerability in your remote working solution, they may be able to access corporate data such as documents and emails. If your solution provides remote access to the office local network, then the attacker could gain a foothold to attack internal servers, workstations, and infrastructure devices.
Meet Our Newest Solution: Remote Working Security Assessment
The Ongoing Operations cybersecurity team has built a Remote Working Security Assessment service that is tailored around the unique needs of each client so that you can be assured that you are not opening up your credit union’s corporate network to further risks.
What Is A Remote Working Security Assessment?
Our cybersecurity team will assess your current remote working solution in detail to identify any vulnerabilities that could be exploited by an attacker. Results of the evaluation are then shared with your team, allowing you to prioritize and plan remediation efforts to harden your remote working solution.
What Are The Deliverables?
The OGO security team will perform an in-depth evaluation of your remote work program across six key areas:
- Technical Architecture
- Security Controls
- BYOD (Bring Your Own Device)
Once this evaluation is complete, your credit union will receive a report that outlines your security posture across those six crucial areas. Our team will produce a GAP analysis and an action plan to increase the security posture of your remote work program where needed.
Remote work presents a unique challenge for information security because remote work environments don't usually have the same safeguards as in the office. When an employee is at the office, they are working behind layers of preventive security controls. However, when computers leave the perimeter and people work remotely, new risks arise for the credit union and additional security policies are essential.
