How To Protect Your Online Security While Working From Home.

Ok, so now with the arrival of the all-present Coronavirus, you have probably been asked to work from home. While working from home, it is still necessary for you to handle important documents or data, such as company emails, reports, financial data, payroll, government submissions, tax documents, and confidential company information.

However, the problem you might face, is that your online security at home, might not be as strong as your company’s. A majority of businesses will usually have a secured network installed with intricate firewalls and desktop tools to ensure the safety of company data, but a home network is much different. Compared to a company’s network, a home network is much easier to hack plain and simple. This is mainly because your home network doesn’t quite hold the sophisticated security your business would. Working from home from your desktop or laptop, with a basic online network connection will without a doubt leave you more susceptible to fraud…

So, now you ask yourself, “what can I do to protect my data”? The answer is actually quite simple and inexpensive… use personal secure email!  By using secure email, such as NeoCertified, you can ensure the contents of your email, as well as the attachments you are sending, are encrypted and protected so that only you and the intended recipient can access and read them. Additionally, even if a hacker were to somehow gain access to your secured emails, they would still not be able to read them.

The beauty of using NeoCertified Secure Email is that you don’t need to be at your office to send a secure email. You can send secure emails from any internet-connected device, this includes your tablet and/or smartphone. NeoCertified is easy to use and setup, we are dedicated to helping people protect their online information at an affordable cost and with 24/7 customer support. Protecting sensitive data is not something to mess around with. So, regardless of what product you decide to go with… just get something! It is your job and responsibility to not only protect yourself and your company but your clients as well!
