Depending on how you allow access to your corporate network, security concerns exist. If you are issuing a corporate device, then the company should have all the tools that the regular corporate devices have. This method should be less of a concern, except an employee must protect the physical access to the desktop or laptop computer. If the employee leaves it on and logged in, anything can happen — i.e., their kids or cat can accidentally type on the computer and potentially damage the data for the company. If you are allowing the employee to use a personal device at home, then you must also be concerned about the security posture of their home machine AND the company’s network. Hopefully, your business is requiring the corporate standard security software installed on the home device. This requirement is a smart move, as an employee’s home security software is most likely minimal compared to what the company provides. However, with company software on the employee machine, the employee may have the potential to lose some privacy. Make sure your business has a remote work and computer use policy in effect and that every employee signs it.
