Need to use a personal laptop on a VPN for work purposes. How secure will my data be? Will someone else on the VPN be able to access my files/data without my permission? Is there anything I can do to make my computer more secure/resistant to being accessed over the VPN?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Enable a firewall on your computer and do not accept any inbound connections. Disable file and print sharing. Do not login using an administrator account on your computer. Use a login with lowest authority necessary to complete the tasks needed. Do a run-as when elevated authority is required. Be sure your computer has latest patches/updates and AV installed and active.
