Re: "HR" - there's your problem.
I always stood by the view that when companies had a Personnel department, you were treated as a person. When they became Human Resources departments, you were treated as a resource.

I've lost count of the number of WFH calls where "it's shit and slow" and you find that they're using WiFi and the router is in the front room and they're working in a bedroom on the 2nd floor.
"Go and sit in the front room and plug your laptop in using a cable. Is it better?"
"Yes, it's great".
As a generalisation, WiFi = Convenience, Cable=Stability.
Also UK stated ISP speeds are to the router, IIRC, not to any devices.
I've seen quite a few policy documents and the wording worries me.
There's usually some guff about paying out if you get hacked, but they don't define what "hacked" means to them.
Given that most people use the word "hack" in a completely inappropriate way, I suspect that's where the biggest get out clause is. If your data is screwed because you willingly gave your user credentials away, then whilst you might think you've been "hacked" in reality you haven't and I'm sure the insurers will also take that view.
