Employees Need to Understand the Risks of Remote Work

Aaron Turner, president and CSO of HighSide: 'With many organizations using software-as-a-service (SaaS) platforms like Office 365, G-Suite, Zoom, Slack, and others, employees need to understand the vulnerabilities in those systems when they are sharing data while working remotely.  
'For example, Slack has been very transparent in their government filings that they cannot assure the security of information flowing through their system. Every bit of information sent to Office365 or G-Suite can also be intercepted, manipulated, and altered with relatively simple attacks by anyone who has access to network infrastructure that lies between the user and those SaaS services.'
