“Wash your hands and work from home” is the consistent and seemingly straightforward advice offered by leaders across the world in these unsettling times. Coronavirus is dominating our everyday life and possibly changing the way we work forever. In just a few weeks the whole world has gone from a workplace-based culture to knowledge workers being almost exclusively home based. The boundaries for business have changed, and it caught us by surprise. While numerous studies have shown that working from home can help employees increase productivity, what does it mean for your business when your staff are thrust out of the warm, safe cocoon of the office, into the unknown world of public WiFi and increasingly sophisticated hackers and adversaries?
Over half of companies surveyed by Apricorn said that the biggest concern with employees working remotely is the complexity of the technologies and software used, and their inability to secure them. In this environment, employees no longer have the same support or infrastructure as they would in the office, leaving them vulnerable to ‘tailgating’, exposure of sensitive data and scams. What steps can you take to protect your business in these times of uncertainty?
