Other than #patching, what simple advice can our partners give people new to working from home (and #learnfromhome)? (Q14 from #GCAchat 21 May 2020)

(@SBRC_Scotland) Make sure you’re running some decent Anti-Virus/Security software. Windows Defender is an excellent free option but ask your employer if they can provide a premium alternative. Be vigilant about dodgy emails as they’re still the #1 one method hackers use to start their attacks

(@Cyber_Readiness) Response: Pay attention to phishing attempts. Take extra precaution to identify the sender of any attachment you are interested in opening. Also, limit the amount of personal information you are putting online - especially through social media. The more personal information about you in the public domain, the easier it is for a malicious actor to target you.#GCAchat
