“In the age of telework, your home network can be used as an access point for nation-state actors and cybercriminals to steal sensitive information,” said Neal Ziring, National Security Agency (NSA) Cybersecurity Technical Director. “We can minimize this risk by securing our devices and networks, and through safe online behavior.”
To help remote workers mitigate cyber risks and protect the confidentiality of their data, the NSA recently published the “Best Practices for Securing Your Home Network” Cybersecurity Information Sheet (CSI). The guide includes useful recommendations on how to maintain device security, email best practices, network segmentation, password protection, and more. Here are some of the key NSA-recommended cybersecurity best practices for remote workers.
Keep operating systems, routing devices, and browsers up to date
Maximize password protection
Be cautious when using public WIFI
Pay attention to email security
Segment your wireless network
Safeguard against eavesdropping
Use a VPN to maintain data confidentiality
