Date: Thursday, May 12 at 11 a.m. PT / 2 p.m. ET
It’s time to stop thinking about the WFH. When people are working remotely, they may not be at home. Your remote working policies and procedures should also include public places. Block sightlines so strangers can’t see the screen, leave nothing unattended, leave nothing behind, beware of public Wi-Fi. Securing the users and devices dispersed in your region without installing hardware everywhere is a challenge that you must overcome.

- cloud cloud cloud
