If you are anything like me, you are probably going stir-crazy working from home. Don’t let your guard down! Here’s some quick security tips we can all apply to stay safe.

  • Be aware of when your computer’s camera is in use!
  • Consider headphones for sensitive conversations.
  • Keep your camera’s field of view in mind before jumping on a video call.
  • Be mindful of open tabs, files, your desktop, and the files on it before screen-sharing.
  • Send those VTC meeting invites out carefully, and use passwords for your meetings!
  • Prefer your agency’s video conferencing software when possible
  • Malware threats exist in teleconferencing software as well!
  • Look out for fraudulent COVID apps – go straight to the source!
  • Beware of unsolicited teleconference invites and phishing attempts!
