Citrix: The Future of Work Hinges on Making Cybersecurity Everyone’s Business

Conversations about the future of work have to include security. I’ll take that one step further: the future of work very much revolves around the future of security. New ways of working offer exciting opportunities to boost employee productivity, creativity, and engagement, but they can’t come at the expense of security. On the contrary, many of the same practices already shaping the future of work—BYOD, unprecedented mobility, any-network access, employee-centric experiences—can increase risk for data, applications and networks. The attack surface has never been so broad or so inviting—and threats have never been more sophisticated.

At a time when data is both more valuable and more vulnerable than ever, how will we secure the future of work? As a guiding principle, we can’t rely on add-on security technologies and siloed teams. Security must be woven throughout both the IT architecture and the organization to ensure that no matter how or where people work, the organization is protected. At the same time, the measures we rely on can’t be allowed to impair the user’s experience or productivity. Today’s workforce won’t accept arbitrary restrictions or barriers; the same creative spirit that fuels innovation will also lead them to seek consumer-market workarounds.

The key is to make cybersecurity everyone’s business. When employees are fully bought in to security—when they understand its importance and relevance, and they’re empowered to support it without sacrificing their own work, your security team becomes truly organization-wide.
