As featured in #WorkforceWednesday: With all the challenges businesses are facing, it is hard to stay focused on data security. Hackers see the newly remote workforce as an opportunity, and phishing attacks are on the rise. Employers can fight back in a few ways:
- Educate employees.
- Update training materials and work-from-home policies.
- Get security patches to employee devices quickly.
- Update your data breach response plan and communicate it.
- Remind your employees to help keep data secure by password-protecting devices with strong passwords and protecting sensitive information from others near their remote working location.
