Sustaining Large-Scale, Long-Term Remote Telework Security

July 21, 2020


In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Office of Management and Budget made an unprecedented call for agencies to maximize telework arrangements, resulting in some cases with almost 100% of an agency’s employees working remotely. Now, as federal agencies commence reopening efforts, the question remains: Is a maximized telework approach here to stay? And with so many federal workers working remotely, how can agencies ensure that appropriate cybersecurity controls are in place?
CIS’s Telework and Small Office Network Security Guide offers guidance for securing home office environments through proper configuration of devices, networks and encryption standards.
