The modern office has changed substantially in the last few months and even weeks due to the coronavirus pandemic and the surge in remote working around the world. The quick shift to remote work has changed the habits of employees, companies, customers, and society, making remote work much more possible but also a target for cyber attacks.

Working remotely doesn’t mean that common office problems like security and data protection can be forgotten. Remote employees still need to take action to protect data and information, and employers must address issues as they arise.

Governments worldwide have shifted to remote work, if not entirely, then at least partially in response to the Coronavirus. It didn’t take long to realize that this may be more than a temporary shift, as workers prefer to be remote, businesses save money, and teams find increased productivity.

However, moving the workplace offsite does not secure data, information, files, or other materials from thieves and hackers. In 2019, almost 40% of businesses had some type of security breach due to remote or mobile access, which could skyrocket in 2020.

How to Work from Home Securely

What can your company do to ensure that employees working from home can protect their data, equipment, information, and networks?
