As we discussed here, if your business is to undergo a successful digital transformation, then remote working needs to be at the centre of your strategy.

And although there are a great many benefits involved in having employees work remotely, it’s not without its risks – so here’s all you need to know about personnel security in remote working…

The Centre for the Protection of National Infrastructure (CPNI) protects national security by providing protective security advice on physical security, personnel security and cyber security/information assurance.

  • our understanding of the national security threat
  • our experience and expertise
