Securing Your Network In A Bring Your Own Device World

Bring Your Own Device - Fognigma

When the entire world shifted to remote working, many companies did not have bulk technology available to let their employees take home to continue doing their job. This forced many to enforce ‘bring your own device’ or in other terms, they had to let their employees use their personal devices to continue working from home. Although this may seem like a benefit, the cyber security challenges and privacy concerns of using personal devices will cost companies more in the long run.

The Risks Of Employees Bringing Their Own Devices

Data Leakage

When employees access company information using their personal devices, especially from anywhere, it increases the possibility of company data being leaked. Mobile devices are the most susceptible to attacks. Additionally, mobile devices and tablets require frequent updates to prevent security loopholes, and if one update is missed and an employee has company data on their device, your company’s data becomes extremely vulnerable.

Higher Chances of Vulnerabilities

When employees access data from their personal devices, its nearly impossible for companies to track what data is saved on their devices. With that, if any employee connects to a public or suspicious WiFi signal, loses their phone, or forgets to install an update, whatever company data is on that device is at risk.

Malware Infections

Employees are not as careful on their personal devices as they need to be. If any employee unintentionally downloads malicious malware on their device, which is connected to the rest of the company’s network, depending on what type of malware it is, it could end up connecting to other devices on your company’s network. This would allow unauthorized users to gain access to usernames, passwords, and sensitive data posing a huge security risk.

Protecting Your Network While Allowing Your Employees To Use Their Own Device

Limit Access

Giving employees access to everything in the company is a huge security vulnerability. Employees only need access to the stuff they need to do their jobs. To ensure your company’s network security, you need to implement role-based access into your cyber security strategy. This limits employees access to only systems and data required for their job roles.

Two Factor Authentication

Nowadays, both passwords and physical devices can be stolen, which is why many companies are implementing two-factor authentication on their employee’s accounts. Two-factor authentication requires users to have two pieces of information to confirm identities before accessing whatever account they are trying to login to. Most two-factor authentication processes have a strong password with a second factor like a code sent via text message or phone. This ensure safety because even if a password were hacked or a device was stolen, the criminal would need the second piece of information to gain access to the account.

Enable Network Access Controls

Network Access Control (NAC) only lets devices connect to a network that are up to date on their software. Devices that are not will be denied access. This will save your company from a significant amount of vulnerabilities.

Lost or Stolen Protocols

Having a policy in place regarding when a device is lost or stolen will safeguard your data that is stored on that device. Its important to be able to remotely wipe the data that is on the device so that unauthorized users cannot use the device to access corporate data.

A Trusted Software Solution

In a bring your own device world, companies need a solution that secures their data no matter where their employees work, and what they are working on.

The Most Important Network Security Best Practices

Fogigma Network Security

Thanks to COVID-19, most businesses are sharing sensitive company data, communicating with one another, and collaborating on projects virtually. Although the internet provides a great space for businesses to stay connected while most users are working from their homes. There is a downfall to this virtual connectivity – network attacks. The PwC Global Economic Crime and Fraud Survey 2020 states that, the average number of frauds per company reported is about 6, which comes out to equal billions of US dollars lost because of these crimes. With so many threats and so much at stake, even the best network security teams cannot keep up. Companies should be following these measures to protect their business against the multitude of cyber-security dangers. 

Maintain Software

One of the easiest, but most effective, solutions for network security is to update current antivirus software. Its imperative software updates are installed immediately as they become available. However, although valuable, this one single solution is not enough, especially since today’s threats are more sophisticated than ever. 

Make Visibility A Priority 

Most organizations think of their network security as a force repelling incoming enemies, and fail to realize that the people inside their walls are the biggest threat. According to Security Intelligence, 75% of security breaches come from insider threats. Most of these cases being unintentional but how can companies prevent insider threats? By monitoring their user’s activity within their network and restricting access to certain websites. By tracking what your users are doing, companies become aware of the situations and can see what actions happened that may have compromised their companies’ network.

Restrict User Permissions 

While most insider threats are accidental, the intentional ones are the ones that cause the most damage. Most insider threats are from upset or former employees who leak/steal sensitive company information. Although it is common for most businesses to restrict access for each employee, giving users access to everything is a huge security risk. To keep your company and employees safe, employees should only have access to the resources they need to perform their job. Furthermore, organizations need to realize the malicious risks associated with employees using their own devices for work purposes. By using company-provided devices you are in control of what is on it and the accesses employees have. 

Establish A Security Policy 

Just by setting clear expectations and guidelines for your users can make the biggest difference. To be proactive and see where your policies fall short, perform a security risk analysis, and make adjustments where needed. To ensure employees are contributing to your network security, provide on-going security training. Its also beneficial to have a security expert on-staff, for users to reach out to when further clarification or assistance is needed. 

Backup Your Data

A benefit of digital information, is that copies can easily be made. This allows organizations to copy their data information and store it in a separate, secure location off their network. This gives organizations something to refer to in case of a cyber-attack. It is important to regularly backup your data, so one data breach doesn’t ruin your entire organization. 

Third Parties Are Just As Dangerous

If internal users represent such a huge part of data breaches, then third parties are just as dangerous. When organizations work with third parties, they need to access company information somehow. Giving them network access will create more entry points which creates more entry points available for malicious attacks. It is important to evaluate the third parties you are working with carefully and restrict their access as much as possible. 

Education Is Key 

Organizations can have a solid security strategy in place, but if their employees are not complying, your network will always be vulnerable. Securing your data and the users using the data should be a top priority. Train your employees on how to recognize and report threats, what to do to prevent them, and using/accessing data according to your company’s policy. Educating your users on how to protect your network is a huge step towards company cyber safety. 

Be Prepared 

You never really know when a threat is going to happen, so being prepared for the worst is crucial. Organizations must constantly monitor their networks for threats, analyze and fix the threats that do come through, and stay-up-date on cybersecurity best practices and trends.

Digital transformations in organizations are imperative to build long-term resilience. Just by digitalizing traditional processes will not help organizations succeed. The focus must shift to using technologies that do things in a new, improved way that embraces digital transformation. So, what digital transformation technologies will help organizations drive growth?

Automation

With social distancing becoming the new normal, businesses must adapt by automating their operations as much as possible.  The benefits offered from automation is enhanced productivity and superior quality of products while keeping costs under control.

Additionally, adding automation to regular network tasks will enable services to minimize the involvement of its workforce in managing the network bringing down human error and enhancing efficiency and quality of services. 

digital transformation - Artificial IntelligenceArtificial Intelligence

Artificial Intelligence is skilled at identifying patterns from big data, and this aspect alone explains how it is significant in managing the current coronavirus crisis. The features AI applications have such as predictive analytics, natural language processing, speech recognition, image recognition, video analytics, and chatbots are helping healthcare workers diagnose and trace the spread of the COVID pandemic.

Besides supporting the healthcare industry, AI is helping sustain critical infrastructure industries like utilities, gas & oil, and transportation. Organization’s currently using AI can apply predictive analytics to map the real-time and historic data transmitted by IoT sensors on their equipment. This allows them to prevent failures before they occur, while also understanding the root causes of problems. AI makes processes quicker, more efficient, more secure, and safer. 

 

IoT Devices

When COVID first hit, the number of businesses that deployed IoT technologies skyrocketed. The worldwide number of IoT-connected devices is projected to increase to 41.6 billion by 2025. Organizations that leverage IoT in their business strategies will come out on top, especially in cases of remote monitoring and product and process diagnostics when in-person visits are not an option. IoT devices provide increased productivity, minimizes costs with smart asset management, provide intelligent supply chain solutions, and analytics allowing organizations to unlock new revenue opportunities and enhance their customer experience. By incorporating IoT into everyday business lives organizations can track and trace assets, equipment, tools, and people.

Advanced Analytics 

Uncertain times and competitive markets make it crucial for organizations to access the right data points and make informed decisions. By using data-analytics solutions, a business can be active and responsive to progressing situations. Advanced analytics will also allow organizations to identify risks and take action before major impacts.

IoT Device Security Challenges for Organizations

IoT Device Security - Fognigma

The use of IoT devices within organizations has risen at an exponential rate, increasing the number of security risks. Whether its building sensors, surveillance cameras, IP phones, conference room technology, and more, IoT devices are everywhere. Although these devices bring various benefits to organizations, they usually go unmanaged compromising network security. How can organizations continue to gain the benefits from using IoT devices while easing their security concerns? Continue reading to learn more about the overall problem and an easy-to-implement solution. 

Security Challenges of IoT Devices

IoT devices are typically connected directly to the organization’s networks yet are unmanaged. And different IoT devices have different hardware, operating systems, firmware, are unregulated, have unknown vulnerabilities, and are used past there, so-called, supported life. According to the 2020 Unit IoT Threat report, 98% of all IoT device traffic is unencrypted and 57% of IoT devices are vulnerable to medium or high severity attacks. 

One of the biggest fears associated with IoT devices is they can be weaponized for launching cyber-attacks. Cybercriminals know where to find vulnerabilities allowing them to attack VoIP phones, office printers, video decoders, and more to infiltrate corporate networks. With that, organizations are faced with assessing IoT devices risks and trying to implement security policies. 

To limit IoT security vulnerabilities organization’s must adapt their security policies and become aware of the IoT devices currently in their existence, isolate IoT devices on separate networks, restrict access, change credentials, and do regular updates and patches.

How COVID-19 is Reshaping the Workplace in Organizations

how COVID is reshaping the workplace

Did you know only about 12% of organizations felt prepared to shift their on-office workforce to work remotely? Most organizations lacked available technology, had unclear management structures, and weak risk management strategies in place. Now, fast-forward a few months and although many states are starting to lift their stay-at-home orders, organizations have decided to continue their work from home strategies. COVID-19 may have turned our world upside down, but it sure has accelerated the adoption of digital technology. Even though many organizations did not intended for this digital adoption, these practices are likely to stay. Here are a few ways COVID-19 is reshaping the workplace in organizations.

Less Employees In The Office

Aside from essential businesses, nearly all organizations shifted their workforce to work from home. And now that employees have gotten a taste of what remote work is like, many are asking to continue this structure. Since most organizations have realized employees are just as productive at home as they are in the office they are on board with this new work style. Additionally, by implementing more people to stay at home it reduces the number of people in the office which promotes employee safety. Organizations have started to implement flexible work schedules and unified communication and collaboration systems to keep their employees happy, healthy, and productive. 

Contactless 

Meeting rooms, shared offices, office lobbies, break rooms, company-wide coffee machines and fridges are germ magnets. With that, experts are predicting a huge increase in contactless amenities for workspaces.  This can include voice-activated lights, doors, coffee machines, and more. 

Focus on Digital Marketing Efforts 

Businesses that were focused on in-person sales and services needed to adapt to keep their business running. To do so, many decided to shift to marketing automation and digital marketing. Marketers were challenged to communicate digitally to retain loyal customers during this pandemic when in-person delivery was no longer an option. For example, trade shows were turned into virtual events and video marketing has increased even more than it already was. And this is just the beginning for digital marketing!

Modernized Workplace Communication and Collaboration

When more than half the US workforce was forced to work remotely, the need for modernized communication and collaboration had never been higher. This meant communication and collaboration between team members, leaders, and customers needed to be just as efficient remotely as it was in the office. Many organizations were challenged and are still challenged on coming up with an effective approach to help employees stay connected and do their jobs from their own homes. That’s where an all-in-one solution that allows organizations to message, file share, video conference, and secure their networks in one central location comes in. 

Bring Your Team Together – Virtually and Securely 

The time to adapt to the new normal telework lifestyle is now. It is imperative organizations improve their employee’s remote work experience with automation and new technologies. By doing this, organizations can ensure their team members have everything they need to do their jobs by providing effective communication and collaboration tools needed for virtual work. Unified communication and collaboration solutions, like Fognigma, combine secure networks, chat messaging, telephony, video conferencing, and file sharing into a single platform that allows employees to safely and securely do their job from anywhere, on any device. Solutions like this bring employees together no matter the distance. Providing your employees with this type of solution will significantly prepare organizations for this new normal remote workplace.

The Importance of Obfuscation in a Cybersecurity Strategy

Importance of Obfuscation

Its imperative organizations realize fixating a threat is not the same as fighting it. According to the University of Maryland, hackers attack every 39 seconds on average 2,224 times a day. With that, cybersecurity is increasingly a top concern for businesses. 

To help minimize security vulnerabilities and protect user information and company data, many organizations invest in security solutions such as firewalls, VPNs, proxy servers, and other traditional secure access solutions. However, what they fail to realize is the flaws these solutions have which allows hackers to easily work around their security solutions and gain access to sensitive information. This problem is at an exponential growth rate with most businesses using cloud environments and enforcing mobility and always-on connectivity opening even more vulnerabilities for hackers. So, what’s the solution?  

Obfuscation

As cyber-attackers are becoming more sophisticated with their attacks, leaders need to learn to fight the attackers by embracing cyber defense and threat intelligence solutions that are just as flexible and sophisticated. That is where anonymizing, or obfuscating, sensitive data and user information comes to play. Obfuscation masks user and organizational data through a powerful transit cloud of encryption and IP hopping capabilities. How obfuscation works, is that a bundle of complex pathways and directory nodes send communications through multiple network hops that scramble user, location, IP address, and other data. This makes users completely invisible, untraceable, and their data unusable to potential attackers. 

Obfuscation does not just limit access to data, it makes the data unintelligible in cases where unauthorized access is gained. For example, with obfuscation, a Market Researcher who is in San Diego, CA, could show up as a Human Resource Representative in Madison, WI to a potential observer. 

obfuscated solutions for your cyber security solutionsObfuscated Solutions For Your Cyber Security Strategy

Fognigma’s patented software solution creates on-demand virtual private networks (VPNs) that are completely secure, encrypted, invisible, and traceless. By using VMs leased from commercial cloud providers as Exit Points to the public internet, Fognigma allows your organization’s traffic to hide in the vast pool of IP addresses allocated to the millions of people who are using the Cloud at any one time, recycling IPs that have been used by others in the past and will be used by others in the future. All-access to the Fognigma network is protected by Fognigma’s cryptographic firewall solution, so your organization’s networks and nodes do not appear to exist when scanned, probed, or attacked.

How To Secure Your Workspace with Office and Remote Employees

Secure Workspace for office & remote empployees using Fognigma

Most businesses that support remote work are not entirely remote. According to Buffer, about 65% of businesses have a combination of office-based employees and remote employees. Businesses with the type of structure tend to face challenges such as unsecure and inefficient team communication and collaboration, outdated technology, unsecure network connections, insider threats, and more business security concerns due to their users being in various workspaces and not having the right tools to do their jobs.

How Can Businesses Solve These Problems? 

To continue business operations without security concerns, businesses must invest in proper technology that allows their employees to do their job effectively and securely from anywhere. Rather than businesses investing in different software solutions for different business needs such as messaging, telephony, video conferencing, VPNs, VDIs, and file sharing. They can make it easier on themselves and their employees by investing in a solution that allows them to do everything in one invisibile, secure workspace. Fognigma’s patented software solution spins up virtual private networks equipped with completely secure and encrypted communication and collaboration tools.

Communicate and Collaborate With Anyone. Anywhere.

Fognigma Communicate and Collaborate With Anyone. Anywhere.

Even before COVID-19 sent non-essential businesses to work remotely, remote work has increasingly become the new normal. According to Global Workplace Analytics, in the U.S., 4.7 million employees (3.4% of the workforce) work from home at least half the week. While according to Owl Labs, 30% of people report working remotely full-time and 18% work remotely one to three times per week. These numbers are bound to increase as many businesses will continue to allow their employees to work remotely post COVID-19. Although studies indicate that remote work has many benefits, it also has its challenges.

Two of the biggest challenges of working remotely is effective communication and collaboration within organizations. When users are working in a single office environment, people and data are easily accessible. When users are working in their own environments, several variables make secure, effective communication and collaboration a logistical nightmare. Whether its outdated technology and software, unsecured home networks, or limited access to company information, effective communication and collaboration is not only difficult, it increases security threats. 

How can organizations move past these challenges? With Fognigma’s patented software solution, secure, effective communication and collaboration is not only solved, but it is made simple!
