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.

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 ...

Threat Hunting 101: 8 threat hunts you can do with available resources

Threat hunting is the process of proactively searching for malware or attackers that reside on your network. The generally accepted method is to leverage a security information and event management (SIEM) solution that centrally collects log data from disparate sources — endpoints, servers, firewalls, security solutions, antivirus (AV), and more — providing visibility into network, endpoint, and application activity that might indicate an attack.

In this white paper, we will discuss the minimum toolset and data requirements you need for succ ...
