Cyber Safety: Best Practices Working from Home

Many companies have started to have their staff working from home where possible. This is now creating a better chance for cyber criminals to gain access to information than ever before. On top of that they are taking advantage of people’s fear.

This is a quick list of extra steps you can take to make working from home safer.

1. Connect to a secured network

  • A wired connection is best.
  • A wireless connection to a password protected SSID.
  • Do NOT use public WiFi.

2. Connect to a VPN

  • Creates a secure connection which data is passed through.
  • DO NOT forward extra ports to your work PC or set it as a DMZ device on the router.
  • Even on a VPN your PC is still only part of your home network.

3. Be careful of at home setup pictures

  • No confidential information showing on your screen(s).
  • No confidential information showing on papers or anything else at the workspace.

4. Be suspicious of COVID-19 emails

  • Emails have been going around offering links to websites for data or supply purchases.
  • Emails are trying to get people to go to websites to help malware spread.
  • Emails are also trying to sell supplies just to gain payment and personal information.
  • Some emails are spoofed very well and can make you think the source is authentic.

5. Be wary of COVID-19 websites

  • Stick with websites you know and trust for COVID-19 information.
  • Fake COVID-19 websites have been made which just want to infect users with malware.

6. Be wary of unknown apps and/or software programs

  • Stick with the pre-loaded apps & software programs on your computer.
  • Do not download Apps/programs/screen-savers etc. from unknown sources.
