When you work from home you still have to data protection law. It is important that personal information isn’t accidentally lost or revealed to anyone who doesn’t have a right to see it.
You should avoid taking personal information home. Instead, dial into your work PC with Open VPN, or put the information in Box, which is secure but can be accessed from anywhere.
If you work on electronic information at home then make sure you do not save it to your own computer. If you need to do that while you are working on it then remember to delete it when you’ve finished. If you need to print something out when you are at home you should either shred it afterwards (if you are able) or bring it back to work for shredding.
If people in your section or department regularly need to take personal information home with them then it’s best to have a system to record who has taken information away, what information they took, when they took it, whey they took it, and when they bring it back again. This means you can be sure that you know where all of your information is.
