Everyone has adjusted to remote work by now, though certain challenges remain eight months into the pandemic. CISOs continue their search for the right balance between data protection and data accessibility. The struggle is real, as the sharp increase in phishing and ransomware attacks indicate.

This framework lets CISOs overlay strict security and governance controls to ensure employee adherence.
CISO Street recently moderated a virtual CISO panel and asked panelists about their perspectives on current cyber trends and challenges. In this video, Mark Butler, CISO & SVP for MegaplanIT explains how CISOs can mitigate risk when giving employees working remotely access to sensitive data.
