By allowing employees to work from home, many companies are able to remain operational in these corona times. But how do you set up working from home in a secure manner, so that you stay a step ahead of the increasing number of cyberattacks?

Most companies are well-secured against cyberattacks. When your employees work from home, you need to overcome a number security challenges.

With the following tips from Orange, you can let your employees work from home securely:
 

1. Make your employees aware

Advise your employees to consult just a few well-known news sources on the coronavirus. From research performed by the security company Check Point, it appears that 8 % of websites publishing information on corona have an alternative agenda. They install computer viruses and ransomware, leading to identity theft and financial headaches.
