Employers urged to ensure data privacy in work-from-home scheme

  • THE National Privacy Commission (NPC) is reminding employers of their responsibility under the Data Privacy Act to implement policies and processes that ensure the security and privacy of their customers and employees as telecommuting or work-from-home arrangements become widespread.
  • It is the employer’s responsibility to identify the risks inherent in a telecommuting or work from home arrangement and come up with the proper policies and processes for these arrangements and ensure that there are mechanisms to monitor that they are being implemented properly.
