Keys to Embracing (and Securing) a Remote Workforce
As the world works to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus, more and more companies are recommending remote work for employees. However, rapidly transitioning large groups of employees to a remote workforce model comes with several significant challenges to IT teams, the network, architectures and even suppliers. At the same time, cyber adversaries are not taking a holiday, and are displaying new tactics and techniques designed to exploit this growing wave of confusion and chaos.
