Is my shared drive accessible to other domain users?

Ok. Here is the deal. I have recently changed jobs and was issued a corporate laptop joined to domain. I connect to the corporate network via VPN. Here is the question. I have 3 network drives running on network attached server and those are mapped to the company laptop. How can I make sure that nobody can access my personal files?

Thanks a lot

Ask the corporate IT dept. what is their policy.
