In this video, Scott Tomtania from Cloudflare discusses the challenges of remote work, where it's critical to ensure that remote workers feel valued and equally productive. Tomtania emphasizes that with the talent moving to a remote strategy, CIOs are facing increasing complexity. Companies are now hiring talent globally, and this brings challenges with new regulations, access levels, and security threats. To overcome these challenges, secure hybrid work and zero-trust elements are critical for CIOs to embrace. Tomtania also points out that having employees in different countries such as China, Germany, Mexico, and the US can present challenges for CIOs to solve. Overall, embracing a secure and zero-trust approach to remote work is essential for companies to navigate the complexities of a global workforce.
