COVID-19: Cyber and the remote workforce

How cyber vulnerabilities and operational efficiencies are reshaping the "next normal"

Introduction

Almost overnight, enterprises worldwide found themselves in shut-down situations where workers had to shelter and work from home. This has created cybersecurity stressors across multiple dimensions, including:

  • "Bring Your Own Device" Explosion
  • Secure remote access
  • Insecure "ad hoc" processes
  • Insider threats
  • Enterprises are now preparing for the post-COVID world where remote employee enablement and productivity are regular and integral to their plans. As organisations consider how to institutionalise some of the processes and functions they quickly put into place in the early months of 2020, cyber security should be a prominent player in all efforts.
  • The opportunity comes in taking lessons learned from what was needed as well as created out of necessity and transforming those into the next-generation of security and capabilities.
