Before you jump the gun and quickly & 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 PC’s, 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 cyber-criminals today. Here are a few tips for a more secure WiFi:

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

Step 3: Use a Two-Factor Authentication VPN

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