Keep your data safe when staff use their own devices
Because we have to work from home for now, your team are probably using their own devices.
Which is fine… so long as your business’s data security isn’t compromised in any way.
That’s a big ask. Especially if your staff are sharing their devices with other members of the family.
We’ve created a brand new video highlighting seven golden rules for keeping your business’s data safe.

With all the business interruptions happening right now, it’s critical you stay focused on data security.
Hackers aren’t taking time off. They see this interruption to “business as usual” as a big opportunity.
So if your staff are using their own devices to do company work on, here are 7 golden rules you must follow.
One – make sure their devices are password protected. Multi factor authentication is better.
Two – if they share the device with their family, it might be more appropriate to send them a company device.
Three – make sure their device has antivirus software and protection against malware.
Four – check their operating system is fully up-to-date. And five, is all software patched correctly?
Six – do you have a VPN, a Virtual Private Network? It’s the safest way to access company data from home.
Finally seven, make sure you update your home working policy in the company handbook. Boring but necessary.
You can explore all these in much more detail in our brand new guide.
