The Knowledge Network discussion boards are heating up with several discussions, many about layoffs and telecommuting. Focusing on telecommuting, three discussions come to the forefront.
The first thread focuses on telecommuting security and network issues regarding those that work from home. IT Business Edge contributor Ralph Defrangesco said if he were in a company's shoes, he would limit the types of devices that access the network.
"The last thing we want to do is impact the business in any way. After all, that's why we are here, to help the business. However, we also need to be careful to protect the business."
ITBE reader Jason Hall said businesses need to address the issue of risk when it comes to limiting access.
"I think that (these devices can be) protected in a fashion that reduces risk. After all, risk is involved with walking out the door. It comes down to how much risk are you willing to accept. The business has to be able to answer that."
