As companies navigate the transition to remote operations, they've discovered that working from home brings new cybersecurity challenges right to their table – and bad actors excel at finding creative ways to exploit those opportunities to strike.
By making mitigation of six significant risks a top priority, companies can quickly boost their defenses and avoid potential cybersecurity pitfalls, as their employees continue working from home.
This is our fifth video in a series about risk mitigation. This video is entitled – Avoid Penalties
Risk #5 – Avoid Penalties
Working from home can be too comfortable sometimes. Relaxing the dress code can also encourage workers to relax their attention to detail and drop their guard, creating potentially expensive and painful compliance disasters.
Many industries have adopted strict compliance standards for the secure storage and transmission of sensitive data, like medical records and financial information, with equally burdensome penalties for failure.
Enforcing compliance can be a challenge when a company's workforce isn't centralized.
So here are four tips to help you:
- Don't allow staffers to fail at compliance – and give regulators a reason to come calling.
- Automate compliance as much as possible to make it easy for compliance specialists.
- Make sure that everyone is meeting the necessary standards.
- An automated compliance assistant also keeps up with the minutiae of changes to regulations ensuring no detail gets overlooked.
And finally, remember this, automated compliance makes sure that everything is ship-shape and alerts staffers to potential issues quickly.
