Unprecedented numbers of employees are working out of their normal offices. This new dynamic makes the typical challenges of data privacy and security even more challenging. As employers move to accommodate remote work, they must also protect their data from theft or loss. They must also remember that regulators are watching, and privacy class actions could be looming.

In this difficult environment, employers must take reasonable and necessary steps to ensure that company information accessed remotely is properly managed and remains secure. Normally, human error is the trigger that leads to many—if not most—data losses. Add the fact that many employees no longer have a physical office and are exceptionally anxious; it’s a perfect environment for criminals, State actors, industrial spies, and bored hackers to apply their arsenal of trickery.
