Managing Telecommuting Workers
In the next few weeks, telecommuting will become the norm - managing telecommuting workers is a key management concern
Telecommuting Infrastructure & Monitoring
As the pandemic gets under control and business begins to go back to work in a telecommuting environment - Organizations need tools to manage processes as well as time and attendance for telecommuting workers.
First, there is a need to have rules in place for what and how remote workers interact with the enterprise's systems. And second, there need to be tools in place to validate that remote workers are accessing an enterprise's network. Janco's Mobility Policy Bundle addresses the first requirement. In addition, we have found a third party tool that addresses the second by "Normalizing" Microsoft's security logs which can automatically prove easy access to login activity and meeting security compliance mandates. This second product is scheduled to be released in the next few days. (see CornerbowlSoftware). It is well worth the free 15 trial.
It is one thing to say that workers will work remotely and access sensitive and confidential information via the Internet. It is quite another to be able to assure executive management that critically sensitive information is protected and compliance mandates are met.
The Mobility Policy Bundle addresses all of these issues. The bundle contains eight (8) policies:
- BYOD Access and Use Policy;
- Mobile Device Access and Use Policy;
- Privacy Compliance Policy;
- Record Management, Retention, and Disposition Policy;
- Social Networking Policy;
- Telecommuting Policy;
- Travel, Laptop, PDA and Off-Site Meeting Policy; and,
- Wearable Device Policy.
All of these policies are supported by 28 electronic forms and 14 full job descriptions from Chief Mobility Officer and Chief Security Officer to the Record Management Coordinator. The policies and forms are fully GDPR compliant and meet the California Privacy requirements.
Now is the time to get the Policy Bundle kit with either 12 or 24 months of update service.
