Data security is important in any situation, but as the workplace becomes more and more mobile, the challenges in keeping resources secure continue to grow. This interesting information came from The Huffington Post’s Business Blog in their post, “Managing Security in a Changing Workforce.

According to the United States Census Bureau, 35% or 13.4 million workers worked from home in 2010. Just imagine what that number looks like in 2015. Corporations continue to recognize the many associated benefits that come with telecommuting – improved employee satisfaction, reduced absenteeism, and increased productivity, to name a few.

Data breaches continue to be reported every day as security standards and risks are ever changing. It has never been more important to hire and retain proactive information technology professionals who stay abreast of telework and security trends.
