Almost overnight businesses and employees are facing a new normal —working remotely. 54 percent of workers report having access to work from home benefits in the United States, according to Glassdoor data. Are you one of them?
Although remote work has its benefits like no dress code, unlimited snacks, and your dog joining your virtual meetings, it also comes with significant cybersecurity concerns that companies and their remote employees must address. In this two-part series, we will share tips and advice to keep you safe and secure as you work from home.
We have all seen those selfies of teams sharing their “at home” work experience and their home “office” set up. But remember, never use your personal computer for company business.
