It is impossible to avoid the seismic shift in working culture which Covid19 has ushered in. The explosion of remote working that the pandemic has facilitated is likely to have far-reaching consequences for businesses long after the effects of the pandemic have passed.

This speaks to one important commodity, which both enterprises and their employees must engage with: Trust. Trust is so fundamental to social life that we only start inquiring about it when cooperation breaks down- talking about trust sounds the alarm that our assumptions about social life may no longer be safe. Security is different – The trust relationship must be explicit.
