LED Allies:  I have attached information that may be helpful to you.  The source is the Governor’s Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness (via ESF-17 Team) which provided the attached COVID-19 Guidance on teleworking.

As millions of Americans transition from an office environment to their homes to continue to work, maintaining cybersecurity while teleworking is critical during this challenging time. For organizations/enterprises establishing telework security policies, remote access solutions, etc., NIST has developed a comprehensive telework resource guide that provides information on securing enterprise telework, remote access, and bring your own device (BYOD) solutions.

Some key elements in this document include:

  • Developing and enforcing a telework security policy, such as having tiered levels of remote access;
  • Requiring multi-factor authentication for enterprise access; and
  • Securing all types of telework client devices—including desktop and laptop computers, smartphones, and tables—against common threats.

Please feel free to pass this information to businesses, organizations and stakeholders State-wide.

Thank you for your leadership and partnership in these challenging times.
