Working from home? DON’T! Until you read this…

If you plan on catching up on some work from home AND you’re using a personal device such as a smartphone or personal laptop – DON’T! Unless your personal device is covered under your organization’s IT support plan and tools, your device could be the one used to introduce a significant cyber-attack or data breach of your organization’s technology.

 

ONLY devices that are under a vigilant watch of patching, updating and monitoring, including strong configuration, should be used to work remotely. I recommend only using a company-provided device (laptop, tablet, workstation, etc.) for any employee that works remotely unless those personally owned devices have been properly protected.
