Remote Access allows users to access data from outside locations using dial-up equipment and public telephone lines or cellular/wireless phones on the Internet. Because this form of access is designed for off-site use that may extend after normal business hours, extra measures are required to prevent unauthorized access.

  • Keep dial-up numbers confidential.
  • Remote access to the office via the Internet should use encryption such as Secure Socket Layer (SSL) or Virtual Private Network (VPN).
