NIST provides information resources for secure teleworking

As people around the world transition from an office environment to home working, maintaining cyber security is imperative. For organizations establishing telework security policies, remote access solutions, etc., NIST has developed a comprehensive telework resource guide that provides information on securing enterprise telework, remote access, and bring your own device (BYOD) solutions.

The new NIST Information Technology Laboratory (ITL) Bulletin on Telework Security is based on the 2016 NIST Special Publication (SP) 800-46 Revision 2, Guide to Enterprise Telework, Remote Access, and Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) Security, which remains relevant. Some key concepts in the bulletin include:

  • Developing and enforcing a telework security policy, such as having tiered levels of remote access;
  • Requiring multi-factor authentication for enterprise access; and
  • Securing all types of telework client devices—including desktop and laptop computers, smartphones, and tables—against common threats.
