Here are a few tips to safely work from home:
- Implement good passwords and require two-factor authentication when logging into accounts and apps.
- Make sure there is anti-virus, web filtering, firewalls, and preventative software on all devices that employees are using for work.
- Avoid using personal devices.
- Don’t let anyone else use your work laptop—not your children, partner, friend or other family members.
- Avoid using public WiFi.
- Pay attention to people around you if you are in a public place—look for eavesdroppers and shoulder surfers. You want to be sure passwords and other sensitive information are safe.
- Make sure all employees have secure access to the business network. This includes a virtual private network (VPN) to make sure security patches are installed regularly and computers are constantly monitored.
