As we discussed in part one of this post, isolation restricts remote worker security. (Read part one here before continuing.) Remote workers can’t watch others. They rarely receive verbal feedback. And even if they did, remote workers tend to feel their environment prevents security – which limits their learning. That’s all proven to cap remote worker security. So what can you do about it?
If we’re honest with ourselves, we’ve all known it for a long time. Posters. Compulsory e-learning. Seminars and desk-drops. They’re security awareness staples. And they’re now all, without question, ineffective. They’re designed to teach people about security. Just on our terms.
Research shows how “social learning” impacts security skills – and it says a lot about securing remote workers. Remote working is here to stay. And there are benefits. But when it comes to security, remote working poses a problem.
Independent Research Firm Forrester has named CybSafe a leader in its Security Awareness and Training Solutions report. According to CybSafe CEO Oz Alashe, it’s a big step towards keeping people and societies safe.
