Cyber Security Tips For A Remote Workforce

The health, safety and overall well-being of our clients, family and friends is always our top priority and we remain committed to providing you with the same, high quality service as we always have.
With most employees working remotely, we offer the following guidance to help ensure that your company remains safe:

  • Issue business-owned devices for remote workers whenever possible.
  • Ensure that employees are using a secure VPN connection, especially employees who have access to company resources.
  • If an employee must use a personal computer for work, ensure proper precautions are in place such as up to date anti-malware software and security patches.
  • Remind employees to back up important files.  
  • Restrict employee access to sensitive data, especially employees who do not have a secure connection to the work environment.
  • Require the use of 2FA (Two Factor Authentication) whenever possible to remotely access company resources using apps such as Google Authenticator or DUO.
  • Use strong passwords and a password app such as LastPass or 1Password.
  • Remind employees to practice safe email use and avoid opening attachments or clicking on links from untrusted senders. Additionally advise them not to provide sensitive information via email.
  • Lock your computers when you leave your home office. Sometimes, even our kids can create challenges if they gain access to our PCs.

Safari’s work at All-Star game was terrific. Our client had a last-minute ask that my team was not aware of until the day a representative arrived on site. Their techs didn’t have a solid plan on what their needs were but Safari’s complete knowledge of networks and sharp inquiries into what our client was trying to do literally saved the day in getting their project off the ground. They could NOT have pulled off what they needed without Safari’s involvement.

I wanted to reach out and say thanks to you and the entire team for the hard work and assistance in making our tournament a success. There is a comfort in knowing the staff is extremely knowledgeable and efficient at solving issues and providing customer service when those challenges arise. We also appreciate you all having our best interests in mind when determining what services we will have in place throughout the property.

I travel to sporting events, especially golf tournaments, often. Critical to my daily operation is stable and quick connectivity as I'm constantly transmitting large volumes of images. I know that when I'm working with the Safari Team I've got nothing to worry about. Their systems always work and the set-up and connection are simple. I would highly recommend Safari Events to any vendor in need of voice and data services

This event provides a unique challenge to us with the venue moving to a new location each year. I know that when I show up at the trailer that things are going to be ready. I really appreciate that you purchased additional equipment for your inventory as part of my backup plans and risk mitigations. The Safari Team is very professional, responsive, and committed to quality for flawless delivery of the event. Thank you!

I just wanted to put on record my thanks for your help. The connectivity you always provide is the best we get at any tournament worldwide and is always stable. When we had a minor problem this year, you kindly changed things for us several times until, with your help, I was able to identify that it was actually a problem at our base back home! Without your help, I wouldn't have been able to do that. Many thanks, See you next time!

My Safari team was awesome and really went above and beyond. I just got off the phone with them now after they fixed my issue. They certainly didn’t have to stay after 5 pm to help me but did so. I just wanted to let you know your team is a great asset!
