Most of your employees have wireless networks set up in their homes. Unlike your business Wi-Fi, many home users are lax about creating secure wireless networks – leaving a backdoor open to hackers. Wi-Fi signals often broadcast far beyond your employees’ homes and out into the streets. Drive-by hacking is popular among cybercriminals today.

A few tips for securing your employees’ Wi-Fi access points:

  • Use stronger encryption and a more complex password
  • Hide your wireless network name
  • Use a firewall
