Coronavirus has made organizations across the world to transition their workers away from a workplace environment to work from home. Yet many companies lack the policies, resources or training to allow their people to do so safely. In response, SANS Security Awareness, a division of the SANS Institute, has developed the “Securely Working from Home” Deployment Kit. This free kit offers security awareness experts with a step-by-step manual on how to quickly deploy a training program for their remote staff. All training materials and resources essential to secure remote, multi-lingual employees are added in the kit.
SANS Director of Security Awareness Lance Spitzner defines, “The training materials are a mixture of both our public resources and paid training materials. This comprehensive kit consist of videos, infographics, podcasts, newsletters and digital signage in numerous languages all packed in a single package that we are offering as a free resource to all who need it. We realise that this is a unique situation and we have to do everything we can to assist the community secure their workers during these uncertain times.”
