Home Network Security Tip (ST15-002) from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security

Do you or your employees remotely access your business network from home?  Do you bank online or make online purchases from your home network?  These and many other activities you perform on your home network make home network security as important as network security at work.

“Many home users share two common misconceptions about the security of their networks.

  1. They believe that their home network is too small to be at risk of a cyberattack.
  2. They believe that their devices are “secure enough” right out of the box.

Most attacks are not personal in nature and can occur on any type of network—big or small, home or business. If a network connects to the internet, it is inherently more vulnerable and susceptible to outside threats.”
