Working from Home IT Tips
Our lives have changed dramatically over the last couple of months. Millions of Americans are working from home to help contain the spread of Covid-19. Technology plays a huge part in providing businesses and employees with the tools they need to be successful, but there are steps you should take to secure your home network and keep both private and company data secure.
Stay safe and healthy, and always feel free to contact us if you have IT questions or concerns!
What Every Employee Can Do to Strengthen Security at Home
How do I secure my home network to protect data and endpoints? Here are 4 steps to take while working from home:
- Secure network connections
- Use strong passwords
- Use multi-factor or two-factor authentication
- Secure mobile devices
Protect Your Data with Multi-Factor Authentication
MFA, multi-factor authentication, prevents more than 96% of bulk phishing attempts and more than 76% of targeted attacks, according to Google. Think about that for a second. Why not use MFA to protect both personal and company data?! Especially these days with so many people working from home and working on less secure home networks.
It’s worth it! If you have questions about why and how contact us anytime.
