Due to changing work environments (and changing public health protocols), remote work has become a common practice across a variety of industries. Companies that didn’t have any employees working in that manner just a couple of years ago might have a significant number working remotely today.
This new work dynamic creates many opportunities for employees and businesses, with enhanced flexibility and convenience that wasn’t possible previously. But those advantages also come with significant challenges. When an employee works from home or another off-site location, they take sensitive data with them. And as well as that information might be protected within your company, it’s at risk without a comprehensive plan for remote work employees. Cybersecurity is just as important for those workers, and it takes special consideration to make sure that best practices are used throughout the organization.
