With all the business interruptions happening right now, it’s critical you stay focused on data security.

Hackers aren’t taking time off. They see this interruption to “business as usual” as a big opportunity.

So if your staff are using their own devices to do company work on, here are 7 golden rules you must follow.

One – make sure their devices are protected by complex passwords or better still using Multi factor authentication.

Two – if they share the device with their family, it might be more appropriate to send them a company device.

Three – make sure they have a firewall in place and current malware protection installed.

Four – check their operating system is fully up-to-date. And five, is all software patched correctly?

Six – Do you have a VPN. A Virtual Private Network. Check it’s not an older, less secure type.

Finally seven, update your home working and Bring Your Own Device policies and distribute them. Boring but necessary.
