MFTS Director, Ben Capas, says,

“Now more and more of us work remotely, it is increasingly important that we are all aware of how to keep our devices secure. One danger we often see is when businesses mix work devices with home ones.  The principles of cyber security remain the same regardless of what device you are working on and where. Businesses should ensure they limit and password protect access to company data.  Also make sure their employees follow a strict protocol as well as using designated applications when working remotely.”
