Is your business prepared for a remote workforce?

March 16, 2020

Recently, we’ve had many clients contact us to discuss how they can implement strategies that will ensure business continuity, should their workforce be required to work from home.

In light of recent activity, we’ve prepared a list of recommendations for your business to implement and ways in which we can assist you to continue to operate your business remotely.

Key Business Continuity Measures to Review…

  1. Review your VPN.
    Do your staff have VPN? If your workforce is required to work remotely, can they engage with your network remotely and securely.
  2. Review your Endpoint Security
    Do you have Endpoint protection that protects both staff and clients who are not protected by your firewall?
  3. Review your Mobile Device Management plan
    Which devices does your staff currently use, whether it be smart phones, tablets or laptops. Can you access these devices if you need to?
  4. Review your Collaboration Approach
    Can your workforce work collaboratively across various locations? What measures do you have in place to ensure a streamlined approach to working remotely?
