Your Business & Covid-19
Enable your associates to work securely from home.
Did the COVID-19 crisis sneak up on you? If it did, you are not alone. Business managers, worldwide, were caught flat-footed by COVID-19. Now they are scrambling to transition their work structure to remote usability which is unchartered territory for many companies. With the COVID-19 outbreak still on the rise, remote work is, for the time being, the new norm.
However, there are certain challenges that arise with remote work. One of the most prominent being security, specifically data security. For example, nearly 30% of remote workers do not use screen locks when working remotely. Compliance with data security measures (i.e. NIST’s best practices, utilizing secure VPN) is curtailed with this current transition in the work structure.
Furthermore, if your company handles personal health information (PHI) compliance with HIPPA regulations is vital. Violating these regulations can be costly, fines range from $100 to $50,000 per violation (or per record), and a maximum penalty of $1.5 million per year for each violation. The Office of Civil Rights (OCR) has also imposed criminal penalties in the past for violations.
