Federal Telework During the COVID-19 Pandemic: Cybersecurity Issues in Brief [April 10, 2020]   [open pdf - 1MB]

From the Introduction: "President Trump declared the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) a national emergency in March 2020. In an effort to slow the transmission of COVID-19, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) ordered federal agencies to 'maximize telework across the nation for the Federal workforce (including mandatory telework, if necessary), while maintaining mission-critical workforce needs.' Private sector companies are taking similar measures. This report provides information on telework in practice at federal agencies and potential effects of telework on our communications infrastructure, data, and security."
