Remote Work Security Assessments
A remote working security assessment is a type of penetration test designed to help organizations identify and address security risks that result as a consequence of employees working outside of the office. An assessment can uncover a range of security risks, such as misconfigured infrastructure, systems and applications. Unsafe remote working practices can also be identified.
If an attacker identifies an exploitable vulnerability in your remote working solution, they may be able to access corporate data such as documents and emails. If your solution provides remote access to the office local network, then the attacker could gain a foothold from which to attack internal servers, workstations, and infrastructure devices.
