HR Corner: Tip of the Week - 5 Tips to Stay Secure in the Office

December 31, 2019

Employees are the first line of defense when it comes to our organization's security and have a responsibility to do their part in keeping their companies safe, such as spotting and reporting a phishing attempt to the IT team, or using strong and unique passwords at work.

TIPS

  1. LOCK IT UP
    No matter where you're working, in the office, on your couch, or at the local coffee shop, always keep your portable devices locked with a secure passcode.

  2. TWO IS BETTER
    Two-factor authentication is an important layer of defense beyond your password. It increases your risk of falling victim to a compromise because criminals need access to not only your account password, but your token or smart phone as well to receive the PIN.

  3. VPN FOR THE WIN
    When conducting work outside of the office, ensure your safety by never using WiFi without using a VPN.

  4. STAY SEPARATE
    Never use a business asset such as a laptop, iPad, or phone for personal use. Be sure to keep things separate.

  5. THINK!
    If something looks suspicious, chances are it is! Never open or download attachments from unknown senders and always hover over a link before clicking to ensure you're being directed to the intended URL.
