With more employees around the world working from home than ever before, it’s important that as an employer or manager, you understand the types of devices that are being used by your employees. While research shows that more than 60% of those surveyed by Kaspersky use their own devices to work from home, only around 1/3 of small businesses informed employees of various device security requirements.
