Does using a VPN help to prevent insider threats?
Asked 10 months ago
Hi there. I am an operations manager at an accounting firm, and I have noticed that some of the employees sometimes visit unsafe websites using their work devices. I am therefore concerned that this may cause negligent insider threats, in the sense of devices being infected with malware out of negligence. In order to take steps towards preventing this, would it help to use a VPN? Thanks in advance for any responses.

Insider threats are a real danger to your company. They can originate from an employee who accidentally leaks company information or an ex-employee who has access to sensitive data and wants revenge against their former employer. Using a VPN can help prevent these insider threats. VPNs create secure, encrypted connections between your device and the VPN server. It protects your data from unauthorized access. A VPN is also useful if you're worried about someone snooping on your network traffic - it allows you to install malware on the suspect's computer or mobile device.
