Talking Tech: Continuous Compliance for a Hybrid/Remote Workforce

At the height of the pandemic in 2020, the Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey found that almost half of federal employees worked remotely. By the end of 2022, the same survey found that 14% of employees were working remotely and another 25% were teleworking at least three days a week.


The sudden exodus from government office buildings shone a bright light on the significant challenges it posed to security compliance operations – a challenge that continues today. Employees’ home workstations may not always be connected to the organization’s network and users may be connected through a slow VPN, which presents unique challenges for maintaining a compliant environment. Traditional centralized compliance management approaches utilizing a “jobs” concept of operations are no longer sufficient in addressing these challenges.


Learning Objectives:

  • Outline the common obstacles to securely connecting a home workstation or remote device that you’ve encountered, and the tools available to address them
  • Define metrics to be used to measure cybersecurity compliance improvements
  • Identify any differences in network configuration and compliance controls between remote workers and those on hybrid schedules
