Currently got a job offer for a remote design position. The HR manager I'm in contact with mentioned getting hardware covered, but when asked, only mentioned cyber security?? How do I negotiate / try to coax out of them whether I can get remote hardware (laptop, monitor, mouse, keyboard, etc.) provided through them?

Is this free lance/contract or regular employment? If it is contract, then it may be your responsibility to provide your own hardware and software, the contract will specify what you are responsible to provide vs. what they will provide. If it is regular employment, they should provide you with all the required equipment and software. If anything, most companies require all work for them occur on their hardware/software for security reasons.

I'd talk to the Hiring Manager, and if they don't know, see if you can talk to someone in the company's IT department. I am not surprised HR doesn't really know what you will receive. It might also be a chance to ask for better hardware and software, e.g. larger monitor or prototyping software.

I want to reiterate what S1 and DD1 said, HR (and IT) don't always know what you need to do your job. Your HM is going to know what you need and be the one to file the requests for your equipment.

I would send an email to the actual hiring manager asking about hardware. HR sometimes doesn’t know what they’re talking about, I’ve been sent bad equipment at several previous jobs that when my managers saw, they immediately requested upgraded hardware.

Ask the hiring manager. The person you’ll work directly under. HR usually doesn’t know much about specific roles because each role they work on is different. I’d be super surprised if this was a FTE role and it doesn’t include equipment to do your day to day job. If it’s contract or freelance usually the expectation is that you have your own. Ask straight up before you sign anything or ask to see the employee handbook/policy on equipment—it’ll def be spelled out there.
