Wi-Fi is everywhere today: your local coffee shop, favorite restaurant, maybe even your local grocery store. It’s what makes being a freelance B2B copywriter more enjoyable — you can work from just about anywhere.
But have you ever thought about cybersecurity when you use a public Wi-Fi connection? Are you concerned about your data getting hacked? What about losing confidential client information to a hacker?
Cybersecurity is something we should all think about, even working in our home offices. But it’s even more important when you’re out and about using public Wi-Fi.
The importance of wireless security
Poor (or even no) wireless security means criminals can spy on your computer and whatever you’re doing on it.
That could mean stolen passwords, information, documents, maybe even ransomware, leaving you scrambling to figure out what happened.
As a freelancer, you probably don’t have an IT team behind you. Not to worry, with these tips, you can keep your data secure whether you’re working at home or on the road.
