Making remote working safe and secure

This year has meant a quick switch to working remotely for many of us, and it wouldn’t be surprising if secure working practices have been a little lower down the priority list. 

If that’s something you want to get sorted, we can help.

A couple of months ago we launched SafeStack Academy’s Security Awareness training for small businesses. It’s an ongoing programme designed to make you and your team safer and more secure online. 

There are eight bite-sized modules so far (with more to come), and each one is full of practical knowledge and actionable ways to improve the security of your business.

This week we’ve added a Security for Remote Working module. Whether your team has suddenly found itself in a remote working situation, or you went remote ages ago, we think you’ll find some valuable information in this module that will help keep everyone and everything safe online.

What’s in the module?

Our new module is designed to get learners up to speed in a manageable way, covering the risks you need to know about and how to protect yourself and your organisation.

Among other things, Security for Remote Working covers:

  • Safely accessing your organisation’s tools and services
  • What to watch out for when it comes to working in different places on different networks
  • Using computers and other devices securely

Like all our Security Awareness modules, Security for Remote Working only takes a few minutes to work through, and brings together interactive activities and quizzes to make sure you get the most out of your learning.

You’ll also get a printable summary of the module for easy reference whenever you need it.

Who’s this module for?

We’ve designed it to be helpful for anyone who’s already working remotely, or may do so at some stage in the future. Even if you don’t work from home, you might work from a different location sometimes — so this module is for you, too.
