How to stay safe and secure while working from home
Covid-19 presented us with a lot of challenges not only with our home security but also as it pertains to our day to day job. More offices have decided for their staff’s safety that they would utilize a work from home policy. While at home, we can tend to become relaxed. With that being said, here are just a few tips to keep your home and space secure during this time.
- Always lock your doors and activate your home security system. As we mentioned in a previous blog post, this is the time criminals are on the rise. They will use any opportunity whether in the digital space or at your home. So, by treating our home as if we are not there, will provide that extra layer of protection.
- Don’t use personal equipment for work. Most at home users are not properly set up for cyber security. Ask your company, if they have not provided one for you, to give you a piece of hardware you can take home and work from. They will have taken the proper steps to secure up your equipment.
- Avoid working on public wi-fi when dealing with sensitive information. They lack security and can be easily compromised.
- Avoid clicking on unusual email links. This has always been an issue but hackers do find interesting ways to spoof legitimate staff emails so just be cautious.
