To: Senior Manager
Good day to you and anyone reading this correspondence. I have been tasked by the IT security team to draft a Remote Access Standard to be implemented within the current security infrastructure. Knowing the types of things that could come about from insecure resources I’d like to offer a solution to issues that may come about from using process like VPN and remote access for people that telework into the office from home.
Having multiple levels of access controls will help keep this a minimum risk.
The integrity of the company is a great thing and having the reputation of being one of the most secured companies in the world is nothing to be taken lightly. Having a tool in place that will give you a leg up on the bad guys that want to get at the information that you are keeping at the highest levels of security is invaluable. Trade secrets, highly classified documents and customer, client, vendor information are always the first things that a hacker wants to take advantage of within a corporation such as this.
General Atlantic LLC provides a way for people to access areas of extreme secrecy by ways of key fobs. A key fob is a small device that is connected to a set of keys issued to an employee in an advanced step to authentication for access to certain areas of a website or server remotely. The SecurID SID 800 is one of the most common ways to provide a passcode to a website or even a client computer. The keys generate a randomized 6 digit number in a way that it would never be duplicated so there is always a secure passcode when accessing the server.
This two part authentication process would be added to every access point either remotely or locally by any and all employees within Richman Investments. I’ve had to use this device in several of my customer service positions because there was always sensitive information that I didn’t need to see and if there was nothing in place to prevent me
