  • Flexible working after maternity leave

  • Caring for a dependant

  • A better work-life balance

With homeworking on the increase, we’re anticipating employers will start to receive home working requests from employee’s who’ve successfully been home working on a temporary basis and now want to make that arrangement more permanent.

Stuart Lee from Genesis IT joins Claire to share his top tips for IT Security for home workers, which include:

  • Secure remote working set up
  • Zero-trust policies so employees can only see what they need
  • Prevention of data loss and back ups
  • Maintain compliance at all times
  • Raise employee awareness
  • Protect against cyber attack

If you need help with IT Security for home workers (or for your business in general) give us a shout, or contact Genesis IT directly.

Don’t forget every employee has the right to request flexible working (provided they’ve worked for you for 26 weeks) and you need to seriously consider requests to work from home, especially if employees can demonstrate they’ve been doing so without issue for the past few months. You also need to carry out a home working risk assessment as well as making sure you IT provision is up to the task.
