The Coronavirus pandemic has caused organisations around the world to transition their workforce away from an office environment to work from home.
Yet, many organisations lack the policies, resources or training to enable their people to do so securely.
In response to the deadly disease, SANS Security Awareness, a division of the SANS Institute, has created the “Securely Working from Home” deployment kit. This free kit provides security awareness professionals with a step-by-step guide on how to rapidly deploy a training programme for their remote staff. All training materials and resources necessary to secure a remote, multi-lingual workforce are included in the kit.
Lance Spitzner, director, Security Awareness at SANS explained: “The training materials are a combination of both our public resources and paid training materials. This comprehensive kit includes videos, infographics, podcasts, newsletters and digital signage in multiple languages all bundled in a single package that we are providing as a free resource to all who need it. We understand that this is a unique situation and we want to do everything we can to help the community secure their workforce during these uncertain times.”
To help security awareness professionals digest this wealth of information, a live webcast was held on Tuesday, March 17th at 5:30 pm. Participants were provided an overview of the different resources available and insight into how to make the most of them.
