Basic Cyber-security for Working at Home

If you’re an indexer who works from home—which is all of us these days—maintaining your internet and device security is critical. But keeping up to date on best practices is not so easy.

In just an hour you can fix that by watching this recorded webinar called “Basic Cyber-security for Working at Home”. It was given this week by Jon Lewis at CIRA, the not-for-profit domain registry for “.ca” domains, and webnames.ca, the web hosting service that hosts our website indexers.ca.

Using plain language and only the most basic technical terms, it covers WIFI, your personal devices, passwords, backups, and phishing. Jon says this is an especially vulnerable time for computer users, as criminals are exploiting the COVID-19 crisis. And that’s what makes this presentation so timely.

The presentation is on Youtube. If you want the slides, you can download them from webnames.ca’s blog. Next week they plan to post the Q&As from the webinar on the blog.

This information will be added to the Resources/Working from Home page.
