Each week during Cybersecurity Awareness Month, we’re going to be sharing in-depth weekly cybersecurity tips from our informative evangelists to help your users make smarter security decisions and build your cybersecurity fortress from anywhere!
As an expert in security awareness, security culture management, and anti-phishing behavior management research, we knew Chief Evangelist and Strategy Officer Perry Carpenter would be fit for the job. That’s why he's rounding out the last week in this series with tips and tricks centered around Security Awareness Training.
We’re currently living in a time where most of us are working in a remote setting - that includes your organization’s users. It’s imperative to make sure your users are still aware of potential cybersecurity threats -even from the comfort of their own home.
There are three takeaways you can provide your users right now:
- Keep work and personal devices separate - all it takes is one careless mistake that could cripple your organization. Make sure to keep them separate at all times!
- Protect your organization’s data - if you’re writing down confidential information in notebooks or a whiteboard, who could potentially view and exploit your private data? It’s important to be safe rather than sorry!
- Keep routers, modems, and more up-to-date with latest patches - it’s important to ensure your devices are kept as up to date and backed up as much as possible.
