The risks of improperly managing a privacy breach are high, but unfortunately not uncommon. A data breach puts immense pressure on a company to complete a lengthy and at times ambiguous to-do list of GDPR requirements which often takes up too much of the precious 72h time window allowed for reporting.
Widely-processed personal data in the contemporary world requires new assessments of the rules to accurately protect rights and freedoms of the individuals. The General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679 (GDPR), implemented in May 2018, led to a greater harmonisation of privacy rules in European Union.
This is a very real concern, as some of the most common remote working risk behaviors include weak passwords, logging in to unsecured wireless networks, and misplaced devices. Also, many employees who work from home share a computer with other household members, making corporate data especially susceptible to a breach.
