NCSC Guidance on home working: preparing your organisation and staff

Home working


As part of managing the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation, many organisations will be encouraging more of their staff to work from home. This presents new cyber security challenges that must be managed.

In addition, cyber criminals are preying on fears of the coronavirus and sending ‘phishing’ emails that try and trick users into clicking on a link to a bad website (which could download malware onto their computer or steal passwords).

This guidance:

  • recommends steps to take if your organisation is introducing (or scaling up the amount of) home working
  • provides some tips on how individuals can spot the typical signs of phishing emails

Note: For official information about coronavirus, please refer to trusted resources such as the Public Health England or NHS websites.
