Adapting to the No-Office Normal

Information, privacy professional, and frequently offsite consultant Victoria McIntosh invites businesses to learn effective methods for allowing staff to work from home, in-office, or across the country while still protecting information assets. Deployment of remote security management differs from office programs, but the goal remains the same. Security, in-house or offsite, aims for timely access by the right users to accurate information. We want to allow entry to information resources for verified staff while shutting out external threats. For organizations, this means a plan for what staff needs to access, and how they can protect it from where ever they choose to work.
