Before WFH practices, some companies already struggle with protecting their staff and IT infrastructure from phishing scams and malware. Now that most of their employees are working remotely, how are they going to protect them?

Best IT Security Practices for WFH

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to worsen, most employees are now working from home (WFH), relying fully on telecommunication services such as email and Whatsapp. Companies can better protect their employees by :

• Urging employees to beware of fake COVID-19 news-related phishing emails

• Using IT security protection that validate sender identity

• Turning off all unimportant email sending services

• Enforcing that employees notify IT departments before downloading a software

• Reminding employees not to store corporate account passwords into terminals outside the office

• Providing employees with an easy channel for them to report suspicious emails
