Working from home poses various risks to your company, its data, and its livelihood.  Although your employees may have the best of intentions, establishing a Work From Home Policy reduces these risks by providing them a clear set of guidelines and procedures. 

You should consult with an IT expert, along with your HR attorney, to develop your Work From Home Policy.  At minimum, it should include these items

  • How remote workers are approved
  • What physical security measures are necessary for at-home workspaces 
  • Requirements for maintaining online security, such as passwords and cloud file-sharing 
  • Use of a VPN to connect to company networks 
  • Acceptable Use Policy (AUP) of company devices 
  • Procedure for reporting incidents 

 Having this one document for times like these will bring you peace of mind.
