Before the coronavirus pandemic hit, working from home used to be a novelty for many employees. According to a June 2020 IBM Security and Morning Consult “Work From Home Survey,” 80% of respondents say they worked from home either rarely or not at all prior to the pandemic. In-office work allowed employers and information technology (IT) teams to manage and implement security measures and protocols at a central location.
Now, remote work has become the norm for many and could become a mainstay for some companies. A hybrid in-office work approach also may be an option. Yet, more than 50% of employees surveyed don’t have updated company security policies to navigate potential threats while working from home.
