The COVID-19 pandemic has caused many organizations to quickly jump into increased or even first-time dependence on remote work. SANS has put together a free Security Awareness Work-from-Home Deployment Kit that provides a step-by-step plan to quickly execute an awareness initiative to secure your remote workforce. This kit includes a library of video, audio and print training material, all of which is available in different modalities and languages to meet the unique needs and culture of your organization. '

Awareness is the first step and assuring that remote connections and use of popular video conferencing tools is done securely needs to be focused on early, too. Monitoring and other critical security operations will be impacted both by the use of new technologies and the fact that the security team is all working from home as well. CISO's will face new challenges managing and motivating security teams that are scattered and remote. Supporting safe and productive remote work is key to keeping employees and the overall business healthy and secure.

This webinar includes how-to talks by John Pescatore, Lance Spitzner of SANS, and Randy Marchany, SANS Instructor and CISO of Virginia Tech. Attendees will be able to ratchet up the security of existing remote work approaches, secure emerging efforts and focus on an approach that allows for the enhancement and reuse of remote work capabilities as the world emerges from the impact of the pandemic.
