Implications of Cybersecurity on Your Remote Workforce
2 Minutes Read
74% of companies intend to shift at least 5% of their staff to remote work permanently.
18.8 billion records have been exposed by data breaches in the first half of 2021.
Only 30% of companies will embrace a full return-to-office model post-pandemic, leaving data highly vulnerable to cyber threats.
It took less than a week for the world to change with the COVID-19 pandemic adversely affecting workplaces worldwide. Since March 2020, we have witnessed the most significant migration to remote working. This abrupt transition to a work-from-home (WFH) model forced businesses to support a sizeable portion of the workforce working remotely with little time in hand. The worst impact of this sudden transition was the exposure to cyber threats. Cybercriminals have up their game during these trying times looking to attack remote workers, connections, and technologies that now need extra layers of protection or security. They are exploiting improperly secured Virtual Private Networks (VPNs), business emails, and cloud-based services.
This infographic looks at a few critical cybersecurity repercussions when most of your workforce is operating from home. We also see how you can best manage the risks, overcoming challenges and meeting cybersecurity needs for the “new normal.”
