Don’t use your personal device..

work-from-home-personal-computer

Due to the pandemic, your employees may be required to work from home. Their mindset may be, “I may as well use my home computer.”  This is a dangerous mistake that is made too often.

Home computers and personal mobile devices could be littered with tons of downloaded music, videos, images, and more.  Because an employees personal computer is more exposed, it can invite malware into your business network. 

ONLY devices that are under our vigilant watch of patching, updating, and monitoring should be used by your employees to work remotely.  You should ensure that you provide a company-approved and secured computer/laptop for employees to use at home.
