Survey Says: Remote Work Security Ain't Easy
Show Notes Chapter Markers

Many if not most workers began working from home in March of 2020, and while the numbers have shifted since, a significant portion are still doing at least some remote work. But according to a survey, neither the remote workers or their company IT staff are too happy about the cybersecurity of it all.

For our featured topic this episode, we dive into the HP Wolf Rebellions & Rejections Report, which outlines security frustrations and outright rebellious behavior from work from homers, some misses on the cyber training front from employers, and some perceived scapegoating of IT staff.

In the cyber news world, we discuss identity theft of condo collapse victims, a major DDoS attack in Russia, the new National Cyber Director, and an Apple IOS patch to counteract zero-click spyware.
