The impact of remote work on Albania’s cybersecurity landscape

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, remote work has become the new norm for many businesses in Albania. While this shift to remote work has enabled companies to continue operating during these challenging times, it has also exposed them to new cybersecurity risks.

One of the biggest challenges of remote work is securing the devices and networks employees use to access company data. Many employees use personal devices to work remotely, which may not have the same level of security as company-provided devices. This increases the risk of data breaches and cyber attacks.

Additionally, remote work may lead to a lack of oversight and control over employees’ actions. Without proper monitoring, employees may accidentally or intentionally compromise company data or fall victim to phishing scams.

To address these challenges, companies in Albania should implement a strong cybersecurity policy for remote work. This policy should include guidelines for securing personal devices, password management, data backup, and secure network access. It is also important to provide employees with regular training on cybersecurity best practices, as well as tools and resources to help them stay secure.

Another important aspect of remote work cybersecurity is using virtual private networks (VPNs) to secure network connections. VPNs encrypt all data that passes between an employee’s device and the company’s network, ensuring that it cannot be intercepted by hackers.

In summary, while remote work has many benefits, it also poses new cybersecurity risks. To stay secure, companies in Albania should implement a comprehensive cybersecurity policy for remote work, provide regular training to employees, and use tools like VPNs to secure network connections. By taking these steps, companies can ensure that their data and systems remain secure even in the face of new cybersecurity threats.
