Is your company clean desk-policy suitable to both office and telework environments?

To ensure a secure workplace it is imperative that entities maintain effective clean desk policies that define requirements for properly storing sensitive documents when away from one’s desk.  This would include requirements for securing and storing mass storage devices, including flash drives and other portable storage, during the workday and after hours and guidance for how workspaces should be left at the close of business.   This is also relevant to teleworking employees and should address proper home office protocols.   BDA Global conducts social engineering tests and site audits for clients and develops plans to ensure that sensitive data are secured properly at all times, both in the office and while working remotely.
