With the rise of hybrid work and Bring Your Own Device policies, the attack surface for companies has never been so expansive. One of the first steps you should take to protect your corporate data is to enforce a security policy for all remote workers. Not sure where to start? Here are a few basic checklist items you should be asking your employees to follow:
- Maintain password hygiene: Use passwords that are strong but don’t include any personal information.
- Always use a secure connection: Virtual Private Networks help remote workers encrypt communications with the corporate network.
- Update regularly: Constant updates keep devices and software at their most secure.
- Don’t use public Wi-Fi: Public networks may put your data at risk if they’re unprotected.
