Certifying home network's security to WFH

posted by Abishek Muthian 200 days ago  

In my previous startup, the main constraint in letting the employees to work from home was their lack of operational security knowledge and poor network security of the home Internet network.


Operational security could be improved with proper training, provided an employee adheres to the best practices; but overhauling home networks for every employee for working from home is beyond most startups.

Of course VPN can help and is used by most organisations to strengthen the security of their network when accessed outside their office, but employees often connect directly to their home network also, thereby risking their devices and by extension their office network to a breach.

I see a need gap for a service which audits the security of the home network of an employee, certifies it to be fit for work depending upon the nature of sensitivity, regularly assess the state of security, updates the employer if there is any degradation of the security and perhaps even rent better home network equipments.
