As cyber security continues to be an issue for most businesses, protection of your systems is a primary focus. Add in the increasingly complex data security laws being introduced globally and it can all be a bit much. But what if you work with remote overseas staff? Is your data exposed? How secure are your systems and does that need to prevent you from looking at remote staffing as a solution to your staffing problems.
Many governments are looking at Data privacy laws to protect their citizens from unwanted spam, access to their personal data and potential cyber threats.
So how can you be sure that your overseas provider has the necessary controls in place to ensure your data is secure?
Part of the fallout from the Global pandemic and the great resignation is that there are now more jobs than there are people to fill them. You may be experiencing this yourself. Remote overseas teams can be a financial solution to this problem, but what about data security? ‘If my customers know I have teams overseas, they may think their data is at risk’.
Here at Cloudstaff we enable staff to work remotely, while providing our customers with secure platforms for the staff to work on. We work with our customers to ensure they have all of the necessary checks and balances in place to ensure data security risks are low.
One of our key assets in the Cloudstaff arsenal is the Vault. The Vault was created with the financial services industry in mind but it benefits a lot of customers from a variety of industries, including eCommerce who have payment solutions as part of their offerings. Staff, in addition to being searched in an airport security style screening, are also not permitted to bring any personal belongings in or out of the vault. In fact, the Vault is so secure, it has been audited and passed for the PCI DSS.
Issues of staff shortages and data security aren’t likely to go away anytime soon, so it’s worth considering outsourcing as a solution to these concerns. Discuss your requirements with an overseas staffing provider to see what they can offer.
