Here is a list of good practices to follow for Work from Home:

The challenge many workers are called upon during this period of forced work from home due to the Corona virus emergency is not only in having to reorganize themselves in order to continue the same activities from home that were previously carried out in the office. Several novelties all to be absorbed in no time. If from a productivity point of view, collaborative software and applications become common, workers will also have to pay more attention to everything related to cyber security and the protection of their data.
Another good practice that becomes even more important in work from home is to try to keep personal devices separate from those used for work. Likewise, this applies to your own accounts used privately and for work. Trying to maintain this division as much as possible minimizes the possible negative consequences of an attack on a device. Furthermore, if you have a company PC available, it is recommended to use this to work because it is more likely that the necessary programs are already installed to guarantee security.
Conversion Rate Optimization
Let’s look at a very simple example: If you have 10,000 visits that generate 100 orders (1% conversion) with an average amount of Rs 80, you will bill Rs 8,000. If we can increase the conversion rate to 2%, you will be able to invoice Rs 16,000 without increasing traffic acquisition costs.
In short, it is about selling more with the same traffic.
Avoid public networks
In a time when exits should be limited to conditions of necessity, this is a partly unnecessary point. But you still have to keep in mind that if you were to work outside the home, public Wi-Fi represents a potential risk since attackers can more easily sneak in. In addition to networks, you must also pay attention to any USB devices passed by colleagues: the risk of infecting your PC increases.
The choice of passwords
A point that deserves to be always remembered in any circumstance, beyond smart working, is the use of secure passwords both for accessing one’s personal and working accounts. Never use the same to access different profiles and if you risk having too many keys to remember, it is better to rely on a password manager who will manage them all.
Use Secure network
When working from home, a series of actions must also be taken to make your home connection as reliable as possible. First of all by setting a password for your router, if you have not already done so, and hiding your network from those who do not know its name, interrupting the transmission of the SSDI. Another technical detail is to activate the MAC filter, a tool that allows access to the network only to authorized devices: in this way intrusions from the outside become more complex.
Use Secure communications
In order to be able to connect to the Internet and specifically to the networks or servers of your company, it is then advisable to use a VPN which thus allows you to keep your browsing data hidden and consequently your activities. However, the worker must rely on a reliable VPN, possibly even recommended by his company. And as regards information defense, the encryption of communications or files exchanged with one’s colleagues or with employers’ archiving services becomes very important. Also, in this case, the best solution is always the one made available by the company so that all agile workers can conform to it.
