 Vishing
protocols such as DMARC are set in your email domain to secure it against any attempt of spoofing
or abuse.
3. Deploy a phishing incident response team
In such a critical time when businesses are being hit hard, neglecting security can be an extremely
dangerous situation for any organization. Every single effort matters and each form of vulnerability
has to be taken into consideration. Since the majority of cyber attacks occur via emails. Therefore, a
Phishing Incident Response  tool is the need of the hour. A single vigilant employee can save the
entire organization. A phishing incident tool empowers employees with the capability to report
suspicious emails.
4. Deploy a VPN
Deploy a VPN for secure data transfer between the core system and work systems that employees
are using remotely. It adds on as an additional layer of security by encrypting data while travelling.
5. VDI
Virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) allows employees to work in a virtual environment as if they are
connected to company’s local network from any place, at any time and from any device that is
connected with the Internet. With VDI, data is stored on a server rather than the individual system.
Not only does it significantly lower down risks to data but also, a lesser amount of bandwidth is
required to store it.
6. Encourage employees to use cloud services
Encourage employees to use cloud services like doc, spreadsheet, etc. since this minimize the risk
to data as it is not stored locally.

7. Deploy an MDM solution


Deploying an MDM solution helps the organization in retaining control over business-related
sensitive data. The solution allows administrators to remotely lock the devices and wipe all the data
in case the device gets stolen. This prevents sensitive data from falling into the wrong hands.
