Work from home jobs could pose cyber security threat to businesses, insurer says

The majority of small business owners said they let their employees work remotely when it’s needed, but many haven’t trained those employees on cybersecurity.

It’s a gap that could leave businesses open to a cyberattack, according to Nationwide Insurance. In the company’s latest annual survey of small business owners, it found that one-fifth of small business owners have not provided formal cybersecurity training for their employees.

According to Nationwide, the security lapses employees may have at remote locations represent one of the largest threats to cybersecurity. An attacker could break into a worker’s computer over a public Wi-Fi network, for example.

Falanx Group Ltd (LON:FLX), through its subsidiaries, provides cyber defence and intelligence services to blue chip and government clients worldwide. It operates through Falanx Cyber Defence and Falanx Intelligence divisions.
