Security Awareness

As many adjust to working outside of a secured corporate environment, we must all be prepared and mindful of the forces that seek to take advantage of workers currently conducting business from their homes. These entities implement tactics such as misinformation, phishing, and phone scams in an effort to penetrate your organization's invaluable data.

"Technology alone cannot fully protect you – you are the best defense."

- Carlos Fernandes, CEO Agile Cybersecurity Solutions, Washington, D.C.

"So, you've been told to work remotely because of the coronavirus. About the worst thing you could do right now is download a bunch of sketchy programs for video conferencing, mobile working, and the like, which might carry computer viruses and make it so you can't do any work at all."

- Carlos Fernandes, CEO Agile Cybersecurity Solutions, Washington, D.C.

National Cybersecurity Alliance (NCSA) Checklist

  THINK BEFORE YOU CLICK

Cybercriminals are taking advantage of people seeking information on COVID-19. They are distributing malware campaigns that impersonate entities like World Health Organization (WHO), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and other reputable sources by asking you to click on links or download outbreak maps. Slow down. Don't click. Go directly to a reputable website to access the content.

  LOCK DOWN YOUR LOGIN

Create long and unique passphrases for all accounts and use multi-factor authentication (MFA) wherever possible. MFA will fortify your online accounts by enabling the strongest authentication tools available, such as biometrics or a unique one-time code sent to your phone or mobile device.

  CONNECT TO A SECURE NETWORK

Use a company-issued Virtual Private Network (VPN) to access any work accounts. Home routers should be updated to the most current software and secured with a lengthy, unique passphrase. Employees should not be connecting to public WiFi to access work accounts unless using a VPN.

  SEPARATE YOUR NETWORK

So, your company devices are on their own WiFi network, and your personal devices are on their own. Always keep devices with you or stored in a secure location when not in use. Set auto log-out if you walk away from your computer and forget to log out. Limit access to the device you use for work.

  KEEP DEVICES WITH YOU AT ALL TIMES OR STORED IN A SECURE LOCATION

When devices are not in use, set auto log-out if you walk away from your computer and forget to log out.

  LIMIT ACCESS TO THE DEVICE

Only the approved user should use the device (family and friends should not use a work-issued device).

  USE COMPANY-APPROVED/VETTED DEVICES AND APPLICATIONS

To collaborate and complete your tasks. Don't substitute your preferred tools with ones that have been vetted by the company's security team.

  UPDATE YOUR SOFTWARE

Before connecting to your corporate network, be sure that all internet-connected devices, including PCs, smartphones, and tablets, are running the most current versions of software. Updates include important changes that improve the performance and security of your devices.
