How can businesses secure the remote workforce?

The security awareness of workers is fundamental when it comes to driving cyber secure practices at work. The impact of the pandemic and widespread shift to remote work has made it difficult for IT teams to manage the human element of security. In response, businesses are turning to identity and access management (IAM) technologies as a means of protecting themselves while keeping employees securely connected.

With so many of us working remotely over the past few months, the pandemic has blurred the lines between our personal and professional lives. What’s more, it has led to a spike in COVIDrelated fraud, whereby cyber criminals are capitalising on the crisis to harvest personal information from homeworkers. IT teams have had to rise to the challenge of how best they can bring the security habits of their workforce up to scratch and change the way they access, store and manage sensitive data.
