Five Lessons Learned from the Pivot to a Distributed Workforce

Thumb original five lessons learned from the pivot to a distributed workforce   en

Today, it is increasingly important to enable your employees to work remotely. Working remotely gives employees flexibility while making them even more productive, which in turn keeps them engaged and happy. Blurring the lines between working at home versus working in the office is a primary reason why user productivity has been steadily climbing in the recent past.

The importance of facilitating remote work is further amplified during pandemics, disasters, and other unforeseen events that force many organizations to give their employees the resources they need to stay productive while they are at home. But giving a large number of end users access to corporate resources quickly is no easy task. The ability to scale is also a hurdle to overcome. How can organizations ensure core business systems are scaled to handle the load, and how can they quickly scale up to meet the needs being put on it, and equally important, being able to scale down later when the load on those systems subsides in the future? There may also be additional challenges such as supporting a wide variety of device types that may be managed or unmanaged. Network traffic and connectivity, as well as security, are other critical factors that need to be considered.

Given the circumstances of the recent global pandemic, organizations did the best they could to initially respond with the resources and technologies they had available. As organizations start to turn the corner on the initial “Respond” phase, it’s time to reflect on what worked, what didn’t, and how to plan for the future. As they say, hindsight is 20/20. So let’s take a look at five lessons we learned when a majority of the office-bound workforce suddenly shifted to a distributed one.

Defeating threats through user data: Applying UEBA to protect your environment

You’re facing a constant barrage of threats, some of which you don’t even know exist. The reality is that your users are behind many threats and breaches — whether maliciously or accidentally. Case in point: 69 per cent of organiations reported a recent insider data exfiltration attempt, and 28 per cent of breaches involved internal actors.1 As the typical point of entry for an attack, users are a difficult vector to monitor and secure. To confront the tidal wave of attacks, you need to hone your attention on users by harnessing the power of us ...

Security Operations Maturity Model

This white paper explores how to assess and evolve the principle programmes of the security operations centre (SOC): threat monitoring, threat hunting, threat investigation and incident response. LogRhythm developed the Threat Lifecycle Management (TLM) framework to help organisations ideally align technology, people and process in support of these programmes.

The TLM framework defines the critical security operations technological capabilities and workflow processes that are vital to achieve an efficient and effective SOC. LogRhythm’s Secu ...

Designing for the IoT as Intelligence Moves to the Edge

The IoT is evolving, from a sprawl of raw data sources into focused instances of processed information. Putting intelligence at the edge is creating demand for even more performance using less power and with lower latency. Understanding this, designers and manufacturers are developing and delivering the solutions needed to support doing more with less. Ultra-low power solutions are enabling battery-less designs to be deployed all around the network, each one producing valuable and actionable intelligence.

There are already billions of always ...
