If you or your employees are working from home while our governments lurch awkwardly through the current crisis, then there are several security considerations that must be explored.
Your enterprise outside the wall
Enterprises must consider the consequences of working from home in terms of systems access, access to internal IT infrastructure, bandwidth costs and data repatriation.
What this means, basically, is that when your worker accesses your data and/or databases remotely, then the risk to that data grows.
While at normal times the risk is only between the server, internal network and end user machine, external working adds public internet, local networks and consumer-grade security systems to the risk mix.
