When working from home it can be tempting to use your personal devices to do your work. It is important that you only use the devices that have been provided to you by your company. The most important things to remember are:
When you are not using your devices make sure they are shut down (not put to sleep or hibernated) or turned off and kept in a secure location in your home.
Be vigilant of of who can see your screen when you are working. Also, make sure you have any work conversations away from anybody who can overhear you.
Criminals are taking advantage of this pandemic by launching new campaigns to steal your information and infect your systems. The attackers are taking advantage of peoples’ fear and these emails can look very convincing (see here). Criminals are also using Corona virus infection maps to spread viruses (more information here).
Make sure you are extra careful when opening emails which are related to the corona virus/COVID-19. We recommend that you go directly to an official government website for information and do not click on any links in these emails.
Whilst your work WiFi network might be secure, your home network may not be; especially if you share this connection with other people such as flat mates or your family. To protect any sensitive company information you should use a trusted VPN such as our partner Nord VPN.
It is also important that you keep your Anti Virus product up to date and set it to regularly run scans (if you are reading this and it hasn’t scanned in a while, do a scan now!). If you do not have anti-virus we recommend purchasing one from a trustworthy supplier such as our partner Avira or enabling Windows Security on your Windows 10 computer.
