A new practice guide has been published by the UK Centre for Protection of National Infrastructure; the guide provides guidance on personnel security practice for remote working on a regular or permanent basis. It outlines how remote working can bring benefits for both employers and employees; however, remote working introduces additional security risks which, if left unchecked, may lead to serious consequences, such as an important corporate data loss.
The new guide aims to inform employers about the personnel security vulnerabilities of remote working and provide practical guidance on reducing these risks. Risks can be reduced by introducing effective policies and procedures.
Remote working, whether it is working from home, on the move or in clients or satellite offices, is becoming even more commonplace, growing to an estimated 20 percent of the working population (over 6.5 million people) in 2012.
To obtain the guide, please visit the Centre for the Protection of National Infrastructure (CPNI) to learn more about the facilities, systems, sites and networks necessary for the delivery of essential services across a number of sectors.
