Talking about work from home (WFH) security, a study* analyzed 186 small office/home office Wi-Fi routers from 14 different vendors. It found 155, 83%, of the firmware sampled had vulnerabilities to potential cyberattacks, and that each router had an average of 172 vulnerabilities.
As you and your colleagues work increasingly from home, the risk of a security breach increases exponentially. You are no longer protected by the office firewall. Maybe you’re even using your personal computer for work-related activities.
The security of your business may be relying on domestic, consumer-grade systems, like cheap routers and free antivirus. A breach could mean lost or stolen data, lost productivity, reputation damage, legal issues, high costs.
