... but try not to infect your employer with malware. According to this article and the referenced Kasperksy post, the average Europe and US employee spend 30% of their work hours on anything but work, often resulting in security breaches.

My favorite attack method is "Watering Hole" that aims to infect a site popular among company's employees (like a partner business or similar government agency) and then trick users into clicking malicious pop-ups. 

Are bored employees at the office (or remote) more reckless with security than those off-the-clock? I'd bet many have a false sense of cybersecurity when at work and so are less careful what they click.

At Trestle Networks, we work closely with our Managed Security and Managed WiFi (powered by Mojo Networks) customers to 24x7 monitor and protect their infrastructure against both external attacks and careless employees.
