While Your Team Works Remotely

And Get Help with Our Work-From-Home Consultation

Before you jump the gun and quickly (and haphazardly) set your business up to work from home, make sure you follow these 3 ESSENTIAL STEPS. Ignore ANY of these, and you could be inviting cybercriminals to attack your network and steal your data, costing you considerable time and money.

Step #1: Use Company-Issued Computers and Laptops.

Don’t allow your employees to use their home PCs, laptops and devices, because they are typically NOT secure. Therefore, any malware they “invite” onto THEIR computer can attack YOUR network, compromising YOUR data. Make sure they start with a company-issued laptop that features the latest antivirus software.

Step #2: Secure Their WiFi Access Point.

Without a secure WiFi access point, you’re essentially leaving a backdoor open to hackers. That’s because WiFi signals are often broadcast far beyond your employees’ homes and out into the streets. Yes, drive-by hacking is popular among cybercriminals today. Here are a few tips for a more secure WiFi:

  • Use stronger encryption and a more complex password
  • Hide your network name
  • Use a firewall and make sure it’s enabled

Step #3: Use a VPN with Two-Factor Authentication.

VPN stands for virtual private network, which is a private, encrypted “tunnel” that goes directly to your office’s IT network. By supporting two-factor authentication, your employees will need to use their phones to verify their identity in order to access your network. This one crucial step makes it far more difficult for hackers and cybercriminals to access and steal data on your network.

For some, working from home is a luxury but for others it can be a nightmare. Whether you do your work at home or in the office, technical and security problems will arise. Your computer and network may slow down, your software requirements may become more complex, or video calls are of poor quality, and your IT team has been working hard to find the problem for hours, but to no avail.
