THE VISION

digital workplace services vision

As a senior decision-maker in a company, responsible for strategic business capabilities, service provision, and the quality of talent, you understand the importance of a talent acquisition strategy in the digital age. The days of rigid frameworks that depend on employee location are over. Modern business requires adaptability, flexibility and the ability to thrive in any environment, especially during unforeseen crises.
 
Our discussions with the existing and prospective clients suggest that by 2027, 85% of hiring decisions made before 2022 will become questionable due to shifting business needs. Most of the work will be done not on your local computers, but in third-party services. The location of these services depends on your company policies, budgets, and data security stance. The alternatives are expanding and include Cloud servers, physical servers in the data centres, virtual machines, logically partitioned spaced such as a database segment in a multi-tenant environment. The modern workplace is becoming increasingly digital, blurring the boundaries between physical and virtual spaces, empowering teams to collaborate seamlessly regardless of location and creating a more fluid talent pool.

DIGITAL WORKPLACE BENEFITS

The benefits of a digital workplace are:

1. Flexibility and mobility:

With a digital workplace, your employees can access your data, apps and desktop from anywhere with an internet connection.

2. Increased productivity:

Your engineers get easy and convenient access to all the data and applications they need, automation of routine tasks, and easy communication and data sharing no matter where they are.

3. Reduced costs:

With a digital workplace, you reduce the need for office space, equipment and office supplies. Moving to cloud-based servers and software reduces IT maintenance costs and allows you to quickly scale your IT infrastructure to meet business needs.

4. Improved security:

Centralised access control minimises the risk of information leaks. You can protect data from loss due to failures or unauthorised access by assigning specific access permissions to individual users or groups based on their roles and responsibilities, implementing MFA to add an extra layer of security beyond passwords and encrypting data at rest.

To successfully implement a digital workplace strategy and maximise its benefits, you need to:
 

  • Develop a clear vision of the inclusive digital workplace
  • Ensure there is support from the management team
  • Provide employees with the necessary knowledge and skills
  • Provide the appropriate IT infrastructure
  • Focus on cybersecurity
  • Continuously improve and update the digital workplace

 
In practical terms, it is important to detect and respond to threats to identity data, and manage identity access (IAM).

KEY RISKS

Here are some key risks to consider for a secure implementation of digital workplace strategy:

1. Uncontrolled Access and Data Sharing:

The open nature of digital collaboration tools can lead to unauthorized access to sensitive data and accidental data breaches. The emphasis should continuously be on improving access management with permissions, role-based access control, and multi-factor authentication.

2. Shadow IT and Unmanaged Devices:

When your employees use unauthorized applications or personal devices for work, they create security vulnerabilities. Consider centralized application management, mobile device management, and data loss prevention features. Implement periodic data backups, educate employees on cybersecurity best practices and develop a clear incident response plan.

3. Phishing and Social Engineering Attacks:

Remote workers are often targeted by phishing emails and social engineering attempts. Choose a platform with built-in security awareness training, real-time threat detection, and incident response capabilities, for example, KnowBe4 or Hoxhunt.

4. Weak Password Hygiene and Malware Risks:

Weak passwords and malware infections on the organisation’s devices can compromise your entire system. Enforce strong password policies, offer single sign-on (SSO), and integrate with endpoint security solutions for comprehensive protection.

5. Compliance Challenges:

Data privacy regulations like GDPR and HIPAA are complex, and violations can lead to hefty fines. Make sure your organisation benefits from a platform that supports data residency requirements, encryption, and audit trails.
