Cyber Security for a Newly Remote Workforce - Online Course

Cybersecurity presents a unique set of challenges in any environment, but the shift from traditional networks and asset management paradigms brings unique challenges. Using the People-Process-Technology model can help identify specific threats and vulnerabilities present in a distributed workforce and simplify the process of managing these risks with appropriate security controls.
