Cyber Security Dos & Don’ts for Remote Working

Introduction-Cyber Security Dos & Don’ts for Remote Working

The new normal remote working scenario is a more convenient and cost-effective way of working that is beneficial to both the employer and the employee. However, as more and more employees work remotely, the risk of cyber security breaches also increases. 

According to a survey by McKinsey, about 75% of specialists across several sectors say that cyber risk is a top concern today.

Below mentioned are a few cyber security do’s and don’ts you need to keep in mind if your employees are working remotely:


VPN secures the transmission of information between your employees and you via encryption. It prevents the exposure of data to cyberspies and cybercrooks. Never turn off VPN while working.

DO: Train your employees to avoid phishing scams.

Every employee of yours must know how to handle basic cyber attacks. VPNs and anti-virus software can’t recognize phishing attacks. You have to train your employees to identify phishing attacks, and you can do this by conducting phishing simulation tests. 

DO: Consider Multi-Factor Authentication

Multi-Factor Authentication adds an additional layer of security to your accounts, devices, and computer network. Make this practice mandatory as it will lift off the burden from your IT team and secure your employees.

DON’T: Miss Updates

Ensure that your employees have their software updated at all times. Software updates help fix flaws and safeguard data on the device. 

DON’T: Use public networks

Never use public networks for work. There is a huge possibility that a cybercriminal could be mimicking a public network and viewing your entire online traffic and even your credentials.

DON’T: Assume all email attachments you get are safe

Ask your employees to open email attachments only if they are from trusted sources. For collaboration and sharing attachments to your team, use teams, OneDrive, or SharePoint.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
