Coronavirus has forced many businesses to leave their offices and transfer themselves into a remote atmosphere right in their homes. While it was a necessary action, many businesses struggle with the new environment in terms of security and policy.
This guide was created to both ease the minds of employees thrust into a new environment as well as limit security risks imposed by working from home.
Our goal with this guide was to create a simple and direct set of steps to help guide your employees, and, in turn, your business. Remote work can be made more complicated than necessary, so we opted to create a streamlined base for you to build up with your own unique additions. While it is recommended to personalize your list, pay attention to how much extra "bloat" you're adding. Adding a dozen more small aspects and rules may overshadow many of the crucial security steps that could open your business to danger.
Creating a dialogue with your employees is vital to keep everyone on the same page. With this guide, you'll be able to send a plan to all your employees. It's meant to be attached to a companywide newsletter to help answer some questions. You'll have a collection of tips and resources in the hands of your employees which will create secure remote workspaces.
