Hybrid Working: What About the Risk? (ISSA-Chicago Chapter Meeting)

February 3 @ 3:00 pm 5:00 pm Americas/Chicago

Michael Rasmussen will discuss how in the covid era the cyber security conversation has often turned to addressing the risks of the hybrid work environment. To address employees’ desires, demands, and needs as a result of the pandemic and provide a future of flexibility, many organizations are offering a hybrid option or complete remote working. For many organizations, this has been a quick reaction without really thinking it through carefully. Michael will address:

  • IT/cyber/information security. This is the first thing that comes to mind, but it should not be the only thing. Careful attention has to be paid to the security of the remote office.
  • Physical security. This is often neglected. What about the security of the physical environment? What sensitive conversations can be overheard on the phone, conference calls, Zoom meetings, and more?
  • Where is work being done. This ties into the first two bullets. In a hybrid and remote work environment employees can work from anywhere
  • Conduct. As we moved to Zoom/online meetings because of the pandemic we saw a huge spike in conduct issues. People are working from home. They may be wearing their dress shirt in the video, but are wearing their pajama bottoms under the desk.
  • Culture. This brings us to culture, how do you develop and maintain a strong corporate culture in a remote and hybrid environment. This will require extra nurturing, fostering, and development. Employee engagement and interaction is critical.
  • Fatigue. Zoom/video conference fatigue is a reality. People start losing focus in online meetings after one-hour and are completely checked out in two-hours. Organizations need to restructure how they plan meetings, particularly frequency and length.
