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. It should include these items, at minimum:

  • 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 of company devices.
  • Procedure for reporting incidents.
