Flexible work arrangements (FWAs) can come in many forms, including telecommuting, compressed workweeks and flexible scheduling that allows employees to perform tasks outside of core business hours. Improvements in technology have made FWAs possible for a broader segment of the labor force, but some of these arrangements have yet to achieve widespread acceptance in many organizations’ workplace cultures. However, SHRM research shows that participation in some FWAs has risen in recent years, and these measures have yielded positive results for companies’ recruitment and retention efforts, as well as their employees’ development and productivity.

Employees frequently become unwitting participants in attacks, aiding the lateral movement of threats through the distribution of malicious URLS and attachments or the exposure of sensitive data.
In this E-book, we’ll take a closer look into several email-related activities that employees often engage in that contribute to the spread of these insider (“hidden”) threats and then discuss what measures your organization can take to protect itself from these “hidden” threats.
In this paper from TechTarget you will examine:
The six key considerations for building security into your architecture

As security threats increase and government regulations require more control over users and data, it is important for organizations to evolve their security measures. As enterprises rapidly expand their footprints into cloud, mobile and social, they must ensure that the right users have the right access to sensitive data and applications. Strong as well as optimized identities are becoming increasingly important as insider threat and tightened regulations become more prevalent.
Businesses today are faced with the almost insurmountable task of complying with a confusing array of laws and regulations relating to data privacy and security. These can come from a variety of sources: local, state, national, and, even, international law makers. This is not just a problem for big businesses. Even a small business with a localised geographic presence may be subject to laws from other states and, possibly, other nations by virtue of having a presence on the internet.
In many instances, these laws and regulations are vague and ambiguous, with little specific guidance as to compliance. Worse yet, the laws of different jurisdictions may be, and frequently are, conflicting. One state or country may require security measures that are entirely different from those of another state or country. Reconciling all of these legal obligations can be, at best, a full time job and, at worst, the subject of fines, penalties, and lawsuits.
In recent years, threat actors have become increasingly focused on targeting corporations to obtain sensitive information for financial profit or economic espionage. Regardless of the adversaries’ motives, corporations understand the need to implement defensive measures to secure their infrastructure and sensitive data while mitigating the risk of future attacks.
