Working from home brings new cybersecurity challenges.

As companies navigate the transition to remote operations, they've discovered that working from home brings new cybersecurity challenges right to their table – and bad actors excel at finding creative ways to exploit those opportunities to strike.

By making mitigation of six significant risks a top priority, companies can quickly boost their defenses and avoid potential cybersecurity pitfalls, as their employees continue working from home.

This is our sixth and final video in a series about risk mitigation. This video is entitled – Don't Get Too Comfortable

Risk #6 – Don't Get Too Comfortable

Yes, you read that right. It's tempting for employees to take calls or do their work from the couch with their laptop.

While this may seem like a good idea, in the long run, it's bound to cause back issues and muscle strain. Better to find a good office-type chair and use the dining table or a desk in a well-lit room, to avoid longer-term health issues.

Remind employees not to forget the health basics: periodically stand up, stretch or take a walk, drink water, get plenty of sleep, and don't skip meals.

Healthy employees will have sharper minds and will more likely be on guard for those inevitable phishing attempts, while poor workspace ergonomics can lead to fatigued, frustrated, and hurting workers.

Your distributed workforce can become your strongest asset as the frontline of defense.
