Everything you need to know to create a secure work-from-home workforce during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond.
Quickly train employees to work (and children to learn) from home safely and securely.
In response to COVID-19, organizations worldwide are implementing work-from-home policies. Yet for many organizations, managing a remote workforce is new which means they lack the processes and technologies to secure employees at home.
At SANS Security Awareness, we want to do whatever we can to ensure companies can train and secure their remote workforce. That is why we have released the Securely Working from Deployment Kit, everything you need to quickly train and secure your remote workforce. These resources and training materials are a combination of both our public resources and paid training materials which we are releasing for free. We understand that this is a unique situation and we want to do everything we can to help.
