IT security for homeworkers

One of the thorniest ‘challenges’ of homeworking is the question of IT security, one of the reasons some companies are, understandably, a little jumpy at the thought of staff working from sheds in their own back garden. Two interesting articles on this topic recently, both well worth reading, the first from Processor which contains tips on protecting data and securing networks.

The second, under one of those great cut-out-and-keep headlines Remote workers, a ticking timebomb at comments on a new study by Cisco which talked to 1,000 remote workers in 10 countries and found that they are hijacking neighbours’ wireless networks, sharing computers with non-employees and opening email from unknown sources.
