PODCAST | COVID-19 Remote Working Physical Security Best Practices

Published on: 11/16/2020 By: Gorfine, Schiller & Gardyn

GSG’s Supervisor of Audit and Accounting Services, Mike Schiller, discusses the less regulated security measures taken by companies with employees who have chosen a remote working environment.

The pandemic has forced most companies and organizations to shift normal business operations to a remote working environment. Many have embraced employees working from home by arming employees with the cybersecurity knowledge and tools needed to keep company information secure.

From a digital standpoint, companies prepared employees with best practices such as securing networks with a VPN, offering cybersecurity trainings, and requiring passwords for devices accessing the network. However, an often overlooked security measure by companies are the physical best practices that must be taken in order to keep an employee’s home office secure. Occasionally challenges arise that wouldn’t have otherwise been a concern, so companies have to quickly cover their bases to prevent issues.

In GSG’s latest podcast, Certified Fraud Examiner, Mike Schiller discusses physical remote working strategies companies and organizations should be implementing, such as protecting hard copy documents, computers accessing the company network, and the home office.
