Hybrid Work is Here to Stay, But Only If Businesses Keep Security in Mind

Hybrid Work is Here to Stay, But Only If Businesses Keep Security in Mind

The COVID pandemic forced businesses all over the world to adopt remote work practices, whether they were ready for them or not, and it wound up establishing full-fledged remote and hybrid positions which may never have existed otherwise. However, with these new developments come new threats, and you need to be ready to handle them as they crop up.

Let’s take a look at some of the challenges associated with hybrid work, particularly on the security front.

Compliance is Key

You must remain committed to compliance so that it doesn’t catch you off-guard. Many businesses all over the world are subject to regulations imposed by their industries, and if you are found non-compliant with these regulations, you could be subject to fines and other fees associated with them. This is especially important in a world where your team might be working both in-house and off-site.

To address these challenges, you’ll need to give your team the ability to be consistent with their technology so that they can remain compliant more easily. For example, rather than having your employees store company data on their hardware or devices, you can instead give them the ability to store it all in a secure cloud location or on-site server so as to maintain control over the data’s dissemination. They can then use approved communication tools to access the infrastructure and collaborate.

There are other nuances to this, but these are the basics to cover for hybrid compliance.

Securing Your Business

You must also simultaneously protect your in-house network and your remote employees from security risks. All data should be encrypted so that it can be stored and sent securely to users within your organization. This is especially important to keep data from being accessed on lost or stolen devices.

Furthermore, you need to keep in mind that security systems like firewalls and antivirus solutions must also be maintained to ensure data protection. You’ll want to keep the threat definitions up-to-date so that new and emerging threats are covered appropriately.
