Cybersecurity and Working From Home

London Business Hub is providing advice and information to help businesses and the self-employed work online safely. This week, we provide advice on remote working.

Working from home

With many businesses introducing or continuing hybrid working models that involve employees working from the office and remotely, it’s important to take steps to ensure home-working practices are safe and secure.

The Police Digital Security Centre (PDSC) has published a blog outlining key security considerations when working from home. It has also created a guide with advice and tips on how to secure Microsoft Teams and Zoom meetings.

This video from the Metropolitan Police Service provides advice on working safely from home, including:

  • Setting strong passwords.
  • Using two-factor authentication to secure online accounts.
  • Reporting problems and security concerns.
