Remote work, organization security and data control

When the world came to a standstill at the beginning of the epidemic last year, the pace of cloud or digital transformation in many businesses increased exponentially. Besides, as a result of the epidemic, various organizations have been forced to work with workers from afar. As a result, the ‘remote working model’ is now more prevalent in the workplace around the world than ever before. This has fundamentally changed the way employees work through institutional data.

The way things have changed in the new situation is the work of the workers 

But such changes in the workplace also put additional pressure on the IT systems of various organizations.  Now more sensitive staff than ever before have to transfer sensitive information from the data center to the device.  As a result, even if the efficiency of the employees increases, the business organizations are facing new risks.

At the same time, ensuring data security and balancing work with staff from a distance is as difficult as walking on a rope hanging in the air.  And to do this, businesses are now using a variety of new security models.  

Identify data security risks among remote employees

At present, the mutual cooperation among the employees has reached a different level. Teamwork has now shifted from office to online. Therefore, new methods are being developed to coordinate the work based on how the data will be transferred between the employees of the organization. And in new situations, workers are also using all the new tools.

Digital whiteboards are being used instead of the way whiteboards were used during office meetings. Since many printers in the office are staffed with sensitive information for a short period of time, it is not possible to ensure that the printed paper is torn at the end of the day. As control over sensitive information is reduced, organizations are forced to rethink their security policies. As a result, new initiatives have to be taken to prevent the potential risk of information leakage or theft. 

Employees from many organizations have even been banned from printing organization paper in their own homes. In many places, measures are being taken to restrict access to certain files or applications for certain employees.

However, controlling access to an organization's data alone is not enough to avoid risk. One of the purposes of hiring employees from a distance or from home is to increase their productivity. But conventional security measures may not work when conducting cloud-based activities. Fortunately, with the help of various new security methods, employees are able to safely use the data they need.

The most effective way to ensure data security is to evaluate how the employees of the organization are working with the data. And to do that, let's take a look at one of the 3 things to look for.

Understand your data type 

Whether personal or business information, it is important to identify where that information goes and where it is used. So first identify the risky users among those who are using that information. At the same time, it is necessary to ensure that all the employees can access the various files of the organization safely. 

Stratification of control 

In the case of any type of information, users who are trusted, evaluate the way they operate with the data. Again, impose restrictions on those who cannot be trusted too much in the use of data. And give them access only to those resources without which they cannot finish their work. 

Make everyone aware of the information 

Make everyone aware of the organization's sensitive data. Tools that users use, such as digital whiteboards or portals, may not realize the risk of data theft.

A survey by global research and advisory firm Gartner found that 75% percent of medium-sized companies currently plan to use the hybrid workforce model. As a result, they need to control conventional IT security as well as employees' data usage. 

We need to gain a clear understanding of the various risks that are emerging in data security. And it is through this realization that businesses can ensure proper security and control.

Every organization can reap the benefits of making employees aware of data security without interfering with the work process. This will also increase the efficiency of the staff associated with remote working over time.
