Data Security While Working From Home

What features do you need to securely work from home?

That’s a question more of us are asking in today’s new pandemic normal. There are approximately 700,000 new threats to information identified every day — and that is just those that are reported. Every day, hackers become more capable at compromising traditional data-security systems. It doesn’t matter if your organization is small or large, if you do not have the right security measures in place, your data is at risk.

Today, any computer connected to the internet is vulnerable. This has become even more true as more people work from home. Whenever data is transferred over an open internet connection, it becomes more vulnerable than when being transferred over a secure intranet. This is why data security when working remote becomes crucial. If your business offers remote work to your employees, you’ll want to make certain you have effective data security in place.

“When employees work side-by-side in an office, everything they do is protected by network security settings. It can’t be hacked as simply as data that crosses public internet services on its way between workers at distributed home offices.”

Fortunately, technology has advanced to enable consistently reliable data security while working from home. The strongest way to protect your organization from hacking and potential data loss is to have a prevention plan in place. Enterprise Content Management (ECM) technologies have been helping organizations manage their information and enabling secure collaboration for decades, so now is a great time to turn to these established technologies.

Today’s ECM systems include the ability to store a wide variety of file types either on premise or in the cloud, with a structure and organization that allows users to securely access information from any location and device using a simple keyword search. ECM systems not only help companies with cybersecurity, they also have the capabilities to help with compliance.
