With the release of the Corona virus the world has been turned upside down in the past 2 months…
Like most people, you have probably sent your employees home to work on their home devices (in-home network).
Your data is online (you are not alone so is everyone else’s) – which is super convenient for everyone. Have your employees been trained properly to be well EQUIPPED to handle your company data SECURELY?
Protection of your online data can be as simple adjusting the settings on your browser.
The issue of not being able to get to your data when you need it, a security issue referred to as AVAILABILITY.
As a business owner, lack of AVAILABILITY and virus related SCAMS should be on a list of concerns.
Two things to think about…
- Are your employees putting data in places you CANNOT access, such as home computers and personal email? What happens if you let them go or they leave the company for your competition, your data will be lost – INACCESSIBLE or UNAVAILABLE.
- Be on the look out for scams – especially sites with pop-up windows to trick you into changing your home page or opting into something you don’t want (like a malicious browser plug in)…Or an infected site offering Corona Virus updates or something else in the news!

In addition, you will want to make sure someone is watching the data coming in from your home users remember, they probably do not have much in the way of HOME NETWORK SECURITY (e.g. Firewalls, updated antivirus software, or policies for their kids to follow as they connect with all sorts of gamers and TIKTOK enthusiasts around the world).
