PS-5 – Remote Working Security

Estimated reading: 1 minute 179 views

What is this control really about?

This control is about putting in place processes for ensuring that your employees working from home are being secure when accessing your organization data.  With the rise of working from home, cybersecurity attacks have increased. This is normal because employees don’t all have the same security safeguards as provided in the office, therefore it is important to provide guidance and necessary support to help employees secure their network when accessing organization’s data.
