The Issue

Can your business function effectivelythrough  remote working?

You need to ensure your business can work remotely  and flexibly, and that employees are confident inbeing  able to do so. This may require you to revisit decisions  on access rights, entitlements and risk posture. Questions to consider:

•      Have you scaled your VPN concentrators,portals  and gateways to handle a large number of  colleagues who will need to work remotely?

•      Have you considered the potential key suppliers,  contractors and vendors, who will have toaccess  and the additional scale that will bring in?

•      Have you tested the infrastructure to findout  whether it can handle the expectedloading?

•      Are there single points of failure in the  infrastructure, and can you provideadditional  resilience?

•      Do you need to relax access controls orprovide  additional remote login accounts orcredentials?

•      Is there sufficient help desk capacity to handle  any queries from users who are unable tologin,  or unfamiliar with remote working?
