2024 GDPR Risks of Remote Working

GDPR Risks of Remote Working

Designed for employees across all levels of access within your business or organisation.

After the mass adoption of working from home by businesses during 2020, 80% of businesses have confirmed they intend to continue operating a hybrid working model going forward.

With this adaption to working practices, there is now additional data protection risks that need to be taken into account in order to achieve full compliance. The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) has publicly stated that security measures must not be compromised while working from home.

We have a wealth of experience in helping businesses deal with data breaches caused by simple, staff-made mistakes. Regardless of remote working, the potential outcome remains the same – large fines, reputational damage and criminal proceedings.

Therefore, it is crucial to ensure you and your colleagues are aware of your data protection responsibilities, have policies and procedures and have completed appropriate training for remote working.

  • Delivering a fast, effective way to understand the required standards while operating hybrid working models.
