Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear. I’m Fred Fishkin. IBM calls it X-Force Red….a team of hackers it employs that work to make computing systems more secure. They look to find vulnerabilities before criminals do. It is headed by Charles Henderson…and he says with companies today having so many people working from home…there are new risks to be wary of. For instance..
“The employee in the call center used to go in, they’d work from a secure terminal, they’d work in a secure room and when they were done for the day they left all the personally identifiable information, the confidential data, at work and went home. Now that call center employee is taking those calls, in maybe their kitchen.”
On perhaps their own computers….leaving all of the security controls behind. There’s more info and tips….at www.ibm.com/security.
