As we roll into the last few months of the year, it has become clear that many organizations are only sending a small percentage of their workforce back into the office. What we are witnessing is the emergence of a new way of working—a hybrid work structure where some people continue to work from home, some go into the office, and for some, it may be a combination of the two.
But with this structure, organizations need to make sure they have cybersecurity policies that address the hybrid workplace. This is especially important because during the early months of the COVID-19 pandemic many organizations relaxed security policies to quickly allow employees to work from remote locations without any disruption in service.
The Cyber Readiness Institute (CRI) has released the first of a series of guides–Cyber Readiness for the Hybrid Remote-Office Workplace—to help small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) establish secure policies and procedures in this hybrid environment. CRI also has a series of Remote Work Resource guides to help managers and employees address the cyber challenges of remote work environments.
