Data Protection and Connected Working/Remote Working

Remote Working (aka Connected working or eWorking) is becoming a standard part of life in organisations. Less than a year ago it was considered a perk, and now it is an important part of keeping business going and delivering services in a variety of organisations.

The Irish Government is making telework/remote work a key strategic capability for the country. But the recent consultation by the Dept of Business Enterprise and Innovation on Remote Working highlighted a number of areas of concern. Data Protection was one area of concern that has not received much attention and is mentioned in a very high level manner in the Government’s 2019 Strategy on Remote Working.
