Walking the Tightrope Between Protecting Data and Enabling Remote Working


Walking the Tightrope Between Protecting Data and Enabling Remote Workers Since 2020 work evolved from a location to an activity, and the way we work changed forever. Organizations accept that supporting a remote or hybrid workforce is a permanent reality–a recent study revealed 49% of employees prefer a hybrid work arrangement* whilst Gartner has found 75% of midsize enterprises plan to use a hybrid model**.

With users and data operating outside of traditional IT defenses, organizations must understand new exposure to data risk. That new data risk exposure requires implementation of new security models that balance workforce enablement and data security.

In this discussion, host Alex Hilton is joined by Jim Fulton, Forcepoint’s Director of SASE and Zero Trust Solutions, and Paul Haywood, Group CISO the UK Healthcare Provider, BUPA, to share their experiences and best practices for meeting this challenge.
