IT security does not stop at home office.
With working from home, remote work and agile project work in the context of digitalization, more and more companies and organizations are posing the big question: how can data be securely stored, globally shared and used even outside of your in-house IT? When speed is important in everyday life, many resort to free filesharing providers. Not only is this a risky practice in the long run if the provider does not value data protection.
It also quickly becomes impractical as you soon lose track of what is stored where. When exchanging data by email, conventional mailboxes quickly reach their limits. The use of free Cloud services is not only a security risk as they tend not to encrypt data, but it is also impractical as the data storage capacities are quickly used up.
Data protection and remote working go hand in hand today.
As a result of digitalization, the wealth of data exchanged daily over the internet or provided across company boundaries is growing. The GDPR also obliges companies and authorities to take extensive documentation, information and data protection measures.
The issue of data protection is becoming an increasingly critical factor in the era of remote working and cannot be ignored. Malware attacks and copyright infringements are on the rise every day, making a reliable data protection strategy vital. Violating data protection laws may not only have legal consequences, it can also lead to reputational damage.
