Work From Home Tip - Separate Work and Personal Devices

January 17, 2023

While you may be able to carry out your work from home, one thing to remember is that you no longer benefit from the protection you normally receive when in the office. For information on staying secure both at home and work visit


Keep your work computer and home computer separate. You never know if one has been compromised. 

Work related activities should only be carried out on your work computer. Activities such as paying a bill or shopping online should be carried out on your home computer.

If you can do the same for your mobile devices, even better. 

This can help reduce the amount of sensitive data exposed if your personal device or work device has been compromised.
