Are there business risks and information security risks working from home

Here is an interesting and nice discussion on remote access to your work from home on Slashdot.org.

for me, the risk is manageable if it were not for the lack of symmetric bandwidth.
 
In terms of network bandwidth, download speeds and upload speeds, aka read and write speeds across your VPN etc...to your corporate server or cloud share... if you have in terms of units read and write, 100 read down and 10 write up at home and conversely 1000 down by 1000 up at work... do you see the latency and bottle neck?
 
The router into your business network has the same issue, symmetric 50/50, 10/10, 20/20, or even 100/100... you have the weakness at the problem of the slowest link along the chain and network path.
 
Therefore, remote to your workstation and work remotely that way, or don't work at all. You can if you are a project by yourself, just try to use Dropbox or some corporate version of that in advance but the caching and latency of read/write and updates and synchronization can be a bog.
 
more to come...
