To help clients navigate these risks, Aon has added an additional security domain for “Remote Work” to the CyQu (Cyber Quotient Evaluation) online cyber risk assessment.

The new critical controls covered in the Remote Work domain include: Remote Connectivity, Authentication & Identity, Device Vulnerability & Monitoring, Remote Business Continuity and Remote Security Awareness.
