Whether your entire office works remotely, you have hybrid workers, or you have a select few employees who work from home, maintaining proper and effective security in the workplace is essential to prevent the loss of data and information.
Many different companies use the web in order to transfer and share information and this unfortunately does put the data at risk of being lost, stolen or corrupted. Having effective and reliable security measures in place is essential in preventing this.
While this can be done on a large scale for those working in offices where the computers and devices used are all on the same network and remain in one place, securing remote worker’s devices and data can be more difficult.
This is because you are unable to access, monitor and control their private home network connections, and it is even more difficult if employees use their own personal devices, computers and laptops when working from home.
One way to overcome this is to issue company computers which are used solely for work, which remote workers can take home and use, with pre-installed and regularly maintained security software.
This can be controlled and monitored remotely meaning you remain aware of what is being sent to and from the device and can keep track of all the data and information being sent between employees.
Another great way to maintain security for remote workers Is utilising cloud software which can only be accessed via passwords and keys. This keeps all work-related data in one place and ensures nobody can accidentally access it through employees’ personal computers.
It is much easier to secure data on the cloud than it is to individually manage each employee’s personal devices securely and you can have more peace of mind this way as well.
