Deploy your CyberSecurity Strategy through Developing Security Awareness and Vigilance.

Once you’ve got your policies and procedures set up, It’s now time to deploy and monitor those procedures to ensure they are strictly followed by every member of the team.

1. Patching and Vulnerability Management

Before you start, ensure hardware and software inventories include new items added due to teleworking, to ensure patching and vulnerability management are effective.

Maintain patch and vulnerability management practices, by keeping software up to date and scanning for vulnerabilities.

Enable automatic software updates or use a managed solution wherever feasible.

2. Enterprise CyberSecurity Controls

Implement, maintain, and invest in enterprise cyber-security controls to securely connect employees to the organization’s network and assets.

In modern IT environments, zero trust architecture may be preferable to virtual private network (VPN) solutions. This is due to the lack of perimeter defense in the cloud and distributed systems.

Evaluate the current security architecture and ensure that it is properly protecting—and providing visibility into—remote sites and endpoints, including employees who may use public WiFi.

3. Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA)

Enforce multi-factor authentication (MFA) for remote access to organizational systems and services.

Develop contingency plans or solutions when MFA is not feasible or available.

4. Organizationally Approved Products

Maintain a list of organizationally approved products, including collaboration tools and teleconferencing
applications.

Provide users guidance on using these tools securely.

5. More Frequent Backups

Perform frequent backups of the organization’s systems and important files. Verify backups regularly, and store
backups offline and offsite.

Prioritize protecting against ransomware attacks, due to their potential for prolonged disruption in the telework environment.
