Crisis Management

Crisis Management
With the announcement from the Biden administration regarding companies with 100 or more employees needing to mandate vaccinations...what, if anything, are companies doing to grapple with tracking employee vaccinations status? What technologies are currently available to do this?

Top Answer : First, give HR a minute to figure out policies and needs, it was just announced. 😉 I’ve seen offerings from platforms, including Salesforce and ServiceNow, ready to track vaccination or testing options. I haven’t dug into HR systems but I’m sure they’re coming up as well. A ton of IoT integrations to deal with facility density, temperature, and testing needs. Finally, I met with an interesting contact tracing proximity company last week. Rich marketplace.

How understanding are you of technical difficulties with virtual conferences or webinars?

Top Answer : It does friend on how it happened for the same people. If it's too frequent, it suggests an issue with their capability. Once or twice though, it's understandable.

Anyone using cameras or other setups to scan for fever for people walking into your office?

Top Answer : I work for a non-profit in DC. All employee badges have been turned off to prevent staff from entering the building without prior approval. A request process has been setup thru our ERP system for staff to both request building access and to agree to the conditions for building access. The conditions include: a mandatory temperature scan; an acknowledgement that PPE is required and acknowledgement that social distancing is mandatory. However, there is an outstanding question around what to do if an employee has received the COVID vaccine. The organization has no plans to require staff to get vaccinated. But vaccinated staff do not pose a risk, so the organization is struggling in how to handle the situation when some staff may have received the vaccine.

How is your organization addressing ransomware in the immediate short-term?

Top Answer : Has anybody ever seen ransomware go through cellphones on AT&T's network or Verizon's network? No. It doesn't happen. So that's what we do for internal networks. We have typical VLANs where we try to segment everything. We basically ring fence every single device in its own network and ransomware doesn't spread. The problem with corporate networks is that they’re set up to trust everything once it gets in. If you have VPN or 2 factor authentication, then once you're credentialed in, AWS and all your applications are just one VLAN. It's not going to force you to MFA again. So if the bad guy gets in through phishing or other means, they have credentials. Then they can go to your active directory (AD) to shut down all your GPOs and then go kill your applications. It's poor design on our part, and we're kind of dragging our feet on this.

How are you addressing ransomware at your organization?

Top Answer : I’m not doing anything to specifically address ransomware yet. I'm addressing all of the causal factors that I perceive as reasons that I might be infected by ransomware. At the end of the day ransomware is the end state. Something bad—probably many bad things—had to happen first: either you didn't patch or somebody clicked on a phishing email. More people need to look at the earlier states. What are you doing about phishing and patching?
