Because they can be easily intercept by malicious actors, public Wi-Fi networks present a serious risk. Data transmission over public networks can be made more secure by using encryption protocols, such as HTTPS, and virtual private networks (VPNs).
Employees with remote access privileges may unintentionally or maliciously compromise sensitive data. Insider threats can be reduc by putting in place strong access controls, regular user training, and monitoring.
Malware and Phishing Attacks
Malware and phishing attacks may target remote access endpoints. These threats must be avoid by using email filters, up-to-date antivirus software, and user education on phishing attempts.
Ensuring Secure Remote Access: Organisations should think about putting the following best practices into practice to create a secure remote access environment:
Virtual private networks (VPNs) encrypt all data transmitt and establish a secure tunnel between a remote user and an internal network. To prevent unauthoriz access to sensitive information, organizations should use VPN solutions.
