Security short cuts need long-term strategies

Security short cuts need long-term strategies

The explosion in people working from home in the last few months has been phenomenal. Research from the ONS reveals that the number of employees carrying out their jobs remotely rose from around five percent in 2019 to between 45 and 48 percent following the lockdown. That’s almost a 10-fold increase which took place in the space of a few days. In order to cope, CISOs and IT security teams had to rapidly implement processes that enabled people to remotely work while at the same time keeping corporate data safe and secure.

As we gradually move out of lockdown to a “new normal”, home working is likely to be significantly more popular than before the pandemic.
