Telecommuting: Use Your Own Tech & Be Sure of The Security of the Cloud

A post a Small Biz Trends encourages business owners to explore telecommuting options with their employees by looking at some important tips.  Two of them in particular caught our eye:

Consider Providing the Tech

If your employees deal with a lot of sensitive data, such as customers’ financial information or medical records, it may be worth providing laptops and smartphones.

When tech tools are company-provided, you can control what software is installed on the devices, regularly update the software and install patches. You have less control when employees use their own computers and devices, which may be shared with family members and riddled with viruses.

Investigate Cloud Storage Thoroughly

If you use cloud storage to provide telecommuting employees with access to data, make sure you know what level of security the cloud storage provider offers. Also make sure you know what responsibility they take if your data is breached.
