Tips for Staying Cyber-Secure While Working from Home

As the dependency on digital infrastructure heightens, it’s more important than ever to make sure that your business has a secure BCP plan and an effective remote working policy with clear direction on safely protocols.

At MBC, we can help your organization update your cyber security policy and ensure that your business is protected while employees are working from home.

Some standard measures include ensuring that ALL devices have the latest updates and patches with anti-virus software and extra caution when opening emails from unknown sources or visiting suspicious websites. Stay safe with MBC’s working from home tips!

WORK AND HOME DEVICES

All employees should be on a work-issued device to ensure your organization is protected with your companies pushed security policies.

BRING YOUR OWN DEVICE (BYOD)

When a BYOD policy needs to be implemented, work protocols need to be applied. Ensure your home device has the latest updates and patches.

Passwords

Employees should use complex passwords and follow MBC guidelines for secure passwords.

Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA)

MFA has evolved as the single most effective control to insulate an organization against remote attacks and can prevent most threats from gaining access into your organization.

Unified Communications

Collaborate without compromising privacy and security through Microsoft Teams which combines persistent workplace chat, video meetings, file storage and application integration.

Secure your Home Wi-Fi

Change your default settings and passwords in order to avoid a cyber-attack!

Virtual Private Network (VPN)

VPNs can help create a trusted connection between employees and their organizations
and ensure ongoing access to corporate tools. They provide additional protection
against phishing and malware attacks, the same way corporate files do in the office.

Asset Lifecycle

Ensure that your infrastructure is within its warranty period and prepare a plan to
upgrade before it expires. Consider migrating office apps in the cloud through Microsoft Office 365.
