The current events of the world and the evolution of the working environment has called for growth in remote working capabilities. Unfortunately, with all of this growth and flexibility, many workplaces are leaving themselves open to cyber security risks. Don’t let remote work open the door to cyber threats. Take precautions today.
How to Work From Home and Keep Your Data Safe
Remote work is becoming more commonplace across the world and in multiple industries. It’s an excellent perk for employees and even a required health precaution in some circumstances.
What many people forget about is the need for remote IT support services. When they start working from home, your remote employees are often taking server-connected devices to their home offices or connecting from their personal devices.
Worried about the security posture of your IT services? Reach out to ZenGroup today to learn more about our ZenCare security strategy.
When your employees were at home, you could feel safe knowing that your data was protected by the safeguards in place at your office or facility. Now that team members are working from their homes, you no longer have that safety net.
Their personal information, as well your business data, could be at risk. The good news is that you can have remote employees and keep your data secure at the same time. It just takes proactive strategies and forethought in your work from home policies.
Remote IT Support Is Often the Missing Ingredient
There are multiple studies that show working from home can make workers more productive and save businesses money in office expenses. At ZenGroup, we don’t want the fear of cyber security risks to keep you from taking advantage of these benefits.
Instead of fear, we focus on being vigilant and proactive about protecting your systems. We already offer remote support for you in the office, there’s no reason you shouldn’t rely on us for similar support in implementing your work from home strategy.
Ample Remote Working Security Risks Just Means We Have to Be Comprehensive
Many of the risks you’ll be facing at home were already coming after your business in the office. Being at home just means you might be left vulnerable if you don’t take precautions. One of the most critical steps is to have the right measures in place before your workers start their remote work schedule. As part of our IT strategy services, we can work with your existing internal IT team or on our own to build a work from home technology plan that makes sense for your employees and protects your data at the same time.
Looking for personalized IT security solutions for your business? ZenGroup focuses on delivering the services that fit your unique situation.
Remote Working Technology Strategies for Your Workplace
For many businesses, it has become a good practice to allow their workforce to take their work equipment home with them for remote work. There’s always the chance the equipment could become damaged at home, but the same chance exists at the office anyway.
Having your employees work on company-provided equipment makes it simpler to manage automatic updates to things like antivirus software and other automated forms of protection. When they are forced to work on their home equipment, you’re relying on each individual employee to be proactive about updating their software.
Do you trust the preparedness of your current IT infrastructure? Why not be certain with one of our IT Audits? We investigate data protection, network security, user experience, network performance, and more.
One of the most common ways for hackers or cyber attackers to gain access to information is through phishing emails or social engineering. Whether you’re in the office or at home, the best precautions against these threats are education and remaining vigilant. We can help tell your employees what to watch out for and which messages requesting information are legitimate.
Home Cyber Security Is an Essential Tool for Your Employees
In today’s world of technology and with ZenGroup at your side, there’s no reason to limit your employees to only working within the walls of your office. Employees who have the ability to work from home are also less likely to leave their job.
It’s really about having the security to operate with freedom from almost anywhere. With the right IT support and planning, you can offer the option for your employees and keep everyone’s information safe.
