Is Starbucks the Biggest Danger For Your Business?

Is Starbucks the Biggest Danger For Your Business?

Did you know for a long time Starbucks has called itself as a 3rd place? Do you know what that 3rd place is? Is is the place between work and home. Interesting isn't it?

And while it is a great place to work outside the office so you can be more productive(I am!) it is exposing your business data to a greater risk, well truth is if your employees are working anywhere outside of work the risk is there.

Public networks like those at Coffee Shops and Hotels are literally virtual playgrounds for hackers, they love to hang out on these open networks and attack the people who use them by stealing their data or shall i say their Company Data. Some hackers go as far as bypassing the normal security and installing Malware as well on their Computers.

It does not just end there.

Working from home poses it own set of issues, causing gaping holes in your security.

Even if your home nework is secure and private, chances are your employees do not have the same set of firewalls and policies as you would have in the office.

Even if your employees are careful what about their kids are they as careful as their parents? Are kids as diligent about not click on email links or opening files as you or your employees might be?

While you may have locks on your doors and a security sysem on your house, once a child who lives there opens the front door, none of that security matters, and it's the same online. 

But it's not ALL doom and gloom!

You can protect your business, your employees and your family by having an IT company that makes sure you have the proper security, systems and monitoring on these networks.

With the right security in place, you can even work from your favourite 3rd place.

But you cannot assume all of this, you would have to ask your IT Company to show you the documentation of how you are protected on public WiFi, at home or anywhere.

Or you can get an indepent 3rd party to check your security and how your current IT holds up.
