Moreover, a secure server and centralized management help you keep the security patches updated to fight the latest cyber-attacks.
Define SOP for remote working
Remote working staff should be trained and educated about the cybersecurity protocols to keep the data secure. From following the security best practices to securing confidential data, enterprises can implement several educational methods to ensure that SOP is in place. Gamification can be introduced in the training program to differentiate from another usual training program.
Use a VPN (Virtual Private Network) to access critical data.
A Virtual Private Network is one of the safest ways to secure your public or unsecured network. While accessing the critical files and data over a public network, it is better to use a VPN to secure the network.
