The workplace has undergone a fundamental shift. More employees are working from home than ever, and hackers are primed to capitalize on vulnerabilities. They know the situation has opened up gigantic security gaps that are easily exposed. But don’t worry. With a few simple measures, you can keep the cybercriminals at bay.
