Hybrid workplaces are an attractive working style for many organizations. However, a functioning and secure hybrid workplace can take some strategic planning and management to achieve. By their nature, hybrid workplaces pose various security risks. Security leaders need to educate themselves and their employees on what these risks are and how best to avoid them. In this course, you'll explore what a hybrid workplace entails and the resulting security risks. You'll then outline tips and guidelines to secure a hybrid workplace. You'll also learn about the security risks of the 'work from home' (WFH) working methodology and guidelines for securing it. Upon completing this course, you'll be able to classify the security challenges of a hybrid workplace and WFM situation, outline how to communicate these risks to employees to aid in risk prevention, and recognize the critical decisions when planning for a secure hybrid workplace.
