Encryption and endpoint control: the heroes of post-lockdown data security

The world may have slowed down somewhat in recent months, but cyber-attackers haven’t paused for a second. Some big names have been hit by significant data breaches during lockdown – including Twitter, which fell victim to a spear-phishing attack, Marriott International (again), and the ubiquitous Zoom platform.

Remote working is still the norm within many organisations, and will become a permanent model for some, potentially increasing cyber-risk at a time when regulatory powers grow ever stronger. Against this backdrop, organisations are increasingly turning towards the encryption of data, along with additional endpoint controls, to manage risk.
