3 Tips to Stay Secure When Working Remotely
When 43% of online attacks target small businesses, not securing your business is like leaving your front door wide open and vulnerable to attack. Whether you’ve built a business from the ground up or you’re looking to scale – securing your business will let you focus on what matters. Here are our top tips to get your business secure:
A new ‘cyber everywhere’ mindset is needed to secure your business in the new normal and mitigate the risks. But with 85% of enterprises letting workers use personal devices to access corporate data, the truth is, this lack of visibility when working from anywhere increases your chances of a cyber threat.
To mitigate the risks, secure every device in use with an anti-virus tool like McAfee. One licence can cover up to five devices!
Making sure people have the right technology to work from home is not only vital for long-term productivity, but is also important for improving employee experience, health and wellbeing.
