Quick, where were you when you found out you had to work from home? I remember thinking, “Wow, they just shut down Italy. I have never heard of an entire country being shut down.”
Millions of people had to prepare quickly to move their business online in real time (without warning). New skills were learned, access to technology was problematic for some, and fingers were crossed.
Many workers thought the shutdown was for a few weeks tops, but many months later, there appears to be no end in sight. It seems like just yesterday working remotely was a perk for some, and now it is a requirement for most.
Was your team prepared to move to a virtual work reality? If you said, “not very,” you are not alone. The truth is a few progressive companies transitioned easily. But schools, governments and many other businesses and services were underprepared. In the rush to move to a work from home (WFH) workforce — maintaining security remotely took a backseat to productivity and survival and risk.
“In the future — which is now, actually — ‘remote access’ will just become ‘access.'” — Wendy Nather, head of advisory CISOs at Cisco’s Duo Security

Work anywhere, anytime – this adage has employees connecting to corporate networks via web and cloud apps, as well as remote access services like VPNs and RDP to do their job.
But with this convenience comes a number of threats to users – like phishing, brute-force attacks and password-stealing malware. Devices are also targeted by exploit kits and known vulnerabilities affecting out-of-date software. VPN, RDP, third-party vendor, and cloud and web app access are also targets of malicious hackers.
Learn how to mitigate these attacks in the guide of DUO. Ideal for security, compliance and risk management officers, IT administrators and other professionals concerned with information security, this guide is for any organization that allows remote access to their environment.
