A second wave is swamping home offices

Switzer­land is affected by another wave of coro­n­avirus infec­tions, with mea­sures being tight­ened both across can­tons and nation­wide. Amongst other things, BAG rec­om­mends the working pop­u­la­tion should “work from home if at all pos­sible”.  Accord­ingly, it is high time to once again address the secu­rity issues of working from home.

Ever since the months of spring this year, many people had to address the issue of working from home for the first time. And some­times, they simply felt swamped by it. In such an unusual sit­u­a­tion, it is not exactly infor­ma­tion secu­rity which is fore­most in people’s minds – some­thing which plays into the hands of cyber-crim­i­nals, too. Since the pan­demic began, these have been spe­cial­ising in attacks on those working from home, and they still pose a threat to com­pa­nies, employees and their fam­i­lies alike.

Mean­while, working from inside your own four walls has become part of everday working life and some­thing of a habit. Now would be a good time to address the infor­ma­tion secu­rity issues involved in working from home, and to imple­ment any mea­sures still outstanding.

For this reason, we would there­fore like to once again call your atten­tion to our article on our “5 rec­om­men­da­tions for a secure home office”. Not only will these rec­om­men­da­tions ensure better secu­rity for your home office. These mea­sures will also pro­tect you and your family, since they are pre­venting the whole of your home from falling victim to a cyber-attack.
