What you cannot see you cannot secure: Shining a light on cybersecurity threats in a work-from-home environment
A quick “work from home new normal” search on Google will return results somewhere in the ballpark of 2 billion. On the other hand, searches for “cybersecurity risks work from home” result in far less—around 32 million. While that may seem like a lot of coverage on any scale, it reflects the chasm between what we focus on and what we understand about this new environment as we begin 2021.
By now, most companies recognize there is no turning back the hands of time to the way it was before the pandemic. The digital transformation is not just upon us but part of life moving forward. That’s likely to mean digital or hybrid workforces, digital currency and digital content, all of which can be hacked, causing significant damage to enterprises and employees alike. And while cybersecurity has been a concern for as long as the Internet became a staple of life, the difference now is that instead of organizations considering a strong culture of cybersecurity “nice to have,” it is a necessity—regardless of where workers are located.
