Despite the popularity that remote work has garnered over the course of the last few years, many would never believe that there had been an influx in remote employees even before every company was scrambling to get employees home to avoid contributing to the pandemic outbreak. There is a general stigma surrounding remote work that might give organizations pause, but the truth is, it has many benefits; such as significantly decreased overhead and operating costs. That said, there are also some challenges that must be overcome in order to fully realize these benefits. For example, the ways in which organizations handle the liability associated with their remote employees and their actions online. Take an instance in which company information is compromised as an example, organizations will have to be prepared for this with the right cyber liability insurance. Similarly, as a means to another layer of defense, organizations should be equipped with the right cybersecurity tools such as VPNs and firewalls. From the sounds of it, it might seem as though remote work is just too much trouble to enable. However, the balance in which it provides to employees has proven time and time again as to why organizations continue to offer these settings to their employees. For more information on how your organization can comfortably offer this to its employees, take a moment and read on to the resource coupled alongside this post.
