As the workforce prepares for the long-term shift to hybrid working, financial services organisations are considering how the established operating model should change to maintain both security and agility. But hybrid working comes with its own challenges. Whether it’s personal devices accessing corporate data and applications or cybercriminals exploiting vulnerabilities opened up by remote access – the risk is vast.

Enhancing IT security seems an obvious route to address the challenge, but how do FS organisations meet the demand for agility without increasing complexity? And what measures should they consider to make hybrid working secure without reducing employee productivity?

Additionally, how are companies integrating secure access into wider strategic priorities as they scale?

To answer these questions and explore possible solutions, FStech was joined by Helen Patton, Advisory CISO and Richard Archdeacon, also Advisory CISO at Duo, a secure access specialist (now part of Cisco).
