For financial institutions, the shift to remote work has put strain on both staff and technology.
Historically, offices have been the only place where banking was done. It was the place where the vault was located, where customers came to sign documents and where their work applications resided.
Now, tools like Slack, Zoom and even some cloud banking applications enable banks and credit unions to remove the need for a fixed physical presence throughout the work week.
In a recent survey, 98% of employees stated that they would like to work remotely (at least part time) for the remainder of their career.
Another poll found that 80% of employees wouldn’t take a job that didn’t offer flexibility and that 30% of employees had left a job over flexibility issues.
In banks and credit unions around the country, alarm bells are ringing. The volume of those alerts is loudest in organizations who are not equipped to secure the IT resources that a remote workforce requires.
We recently recorded a webinar, Securing a Remote Workforce, where we discussed the way banks and credit unions can remain secure and compliant while supporting their staff’s needs for greater flexibility.
In this webinar we talk about gaps in existing approaches, the benefits of adopting Zero Trust network access (ZTNA), and discuss ways to implement better controls across every user and application to ensure greater workplace flexibility.
