Coronavirus and Cybersecurity
As the Coronavirus pandemic swings into full effect, most businesses are closing down. Many people are being forced to work from home for social distancing purposes. Working from home is convenient, but convenience isn’t always secure. Using remote desktop can be dangerous because someone can hack into your pc and steal your companies data if you are not using a secure connection. Now is the time that hackers will be working harder. That has many people asking, what can be done to ensure data safety?
There is a screen sharing software that can be used to access your desktop from work. Another way to work from home safely is to use a VPN. Using a VPN allows there to be a layer of security over your companies information.
VPN (Virtual Private Network): “allows you to create a secure connection to another network over the Internet. VPNs can be used to access region-restricted websites, shield your browsing activity from prying eyes on public Wi-Fi, and more…”howtogeek.com
VPN access can get given by your IT provider. VPNs in the business setting allow access to company data via a firewall. This allows you to work from home and access your files while remaining protected. Firewalls are essential to protect your company’s data. A firewall is your business’s first line of defense.
