New guidance sets out how to work from home securely
Guidance on working from home securely has been published by the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC).
The coronavirus pandemic has suddenly presented IT personnel and indeed all users with a set of cyber security challenges that, while not unique, are being experienced on a significantly larger scale than ever before, the NCSC said.
In this context, the NCSC has created new guidance which sets out how people working from home as part of the fight against COVID-19 can protect themselves from cyber attacks while staying connected.
Communications Minister Richard Bruton said: “Now more than ever, people are relying on technology to stay connected. This exposes you to risks which may be unfamiliar. This advise explains the risks of hacking and fraud and how you can protect yourself against them.”
