The Future Of Security For Working From Home - Razorwire Podcast

The Future Of Security For Working From Home - Razorwire Podcast

One legacy from Covid 19 that’s here to stay is working from home. Staff love it as it gives them flexibility, and organisations save on infrastructure costs. Still, the transition into the digital world is not smooth and comes with many vulnerabilities and risks.

Welcome again to the Razorwire podcast. This week I am joined by Andy Johnson of Highside and Aaron Thundercliffe from CyberArk. We sat together and discussed the past, present and future of working from home; where were we years ago? How has it changed recently, and what are the opportunities and risks for remote working in the future?

There is a behavioural divide between two types of organisations: one that is in a rush to re-open their offices and one that is shifting their employee to work from home to save paying for costly office rental. Even though some employees appreciate the flexibility, it’s been found that they also feel isolated regarding social interactions.

We discussed the security implications of working from home and shared our experiences.

This episode is perfect for anyone interested in how the security of remote working will evolve and what we as security professionals need in place to keep on top of developments. Play and listen on your fav podcasting platform.
