Hybrid Work, Cyber Security, Compliance, Data Privacy, UC Cloud

Cyber attacks have always been a significant challenge for businesses, but the rise of remote and hybrid working in recent years has greatly expanded the risk landscape, and as such achieving compliance in an increasingly digital and unpredictable working landscape has become more crucial.

This blog examines:

• How the rise of hybrid work has impacted the cyber security landscape
• What compliance means and why it matters

Flexible hybrid work comes with higher cyber security risks

While hybrid work comes with so many advantages, it also presents huge levels of risk for your business.

With employees working at home on public networks, via their own personal devices with apps that don’t pass the same levels of scrutiny that they might in an enterprise environment, businesses must be aware of the vulnerabilities that can come with more flexible working. Now, as even the most forward-thinking businesses find it difficult to oversee and manage their security risks, it has become more crucial than ever for organisations to invest in more efficient security.

According to TechTarget, there are several critical remote working cyber risks in the UK including the following:

Shadow IT Unsecured and vulnerable hardware
Unsecured and vulnerable networks Vulnerability to phishing attacks
Less oversight Susceptibility to webcam hacking
Growing attack surfaces Misconfigurations in the public cloud
Insufficient data practices

Managing these vulnerabilities is a lot for any business to handle. The good news is, using cloud solutions can make improving your security easier, as long as you can choose the right cloud vendors and ensure the solutions are secure. Businesses today must take the time to ensure they’ve partnered with the technology vendors that put in the work and continuously improve their security capabilities.

Compliance: why it matters

Simply put, compliance means conforming to a set of rules, specifications, policies, standards or law. Depending on your industry, and the territories you operate in, you’ll need to adhere to different principles and policies. Achieving compliance, in an increasingly digital and therefore, unpredictable working landscape, has become more and more important. While it might seem daunting, adhering to compliance helps you to protect your business, employees and customers, and builds trust among all your stakeholders, as it evidences best-practice and demonstrates that you are actively safeguarding their interests.

Building trust in your communications

Businesses today need to have unwavering faith in their communications systems. As organisations navigate the many challenges that come with hybrid and remote working, it’s crucial to have a vendor that acts as a reliable partner, prioritising and valuing your security and data privacy as your business grows.
