    In my perspective, the company has to encrypt crucial data that might be used against them for different types of threat and use a secured VPN.

    Crucial data will always be secured on the company’s end, but on the employee’s end while working remotely having additional security such as VPNs when connecting to the company’s database is a great advantage to avoid hackers, phishers or ransomwares.

    Back up your vital data and files frequently to safe places, including cloud storage services or external hard drives that are encrypted. This safeguards your information in the event of accidental loss, equipment malfunction, or security breaches.
