Why Adopting Cybersecurity Best Practices Turned Crucial in the Remote Work Era?
Organizations will be required to get cyber insurance plans by 2021 to limit financial risks from cyberattacks. Some businesses, like retailers, have already purchased cyber risk insurance, and more are expected to do so in the future.
Fremont, CA: The year 2020 has literally put a stop to digital transformation initiatives, and the shift in how we do business as a result of COVID-19 will have long-term security implications. Many firms used the cloud to speed their goals while adopting new technologies and methods; nevertheless, hackers were able to modify their strategies and tactics. Here are three trends transforming cybersecurity in a remote workforce:
More Cloud Breaches
The COVID-19 pandemic prompted businesses to migrate to the cloud; nevertheless, growing faith in public, private, and hybrid data clouds prepared the door for new issues. Misconfigured security mechanisms and a lack of monitoring in the cloud have led to tougher security protocols and security testing features. With more people using the cloud, there is a higher level of trust in infrastructure security.
Increase in Cyber Insurance Purchases is Ahead
We will witness one of the highest rises in cyber insurance purchases ever due to the surge in cyberattacks.
Security Awareness is a requirement
Due to COVID-19-related stress, many CISOs tabled the need and demand for security awareness training in 2020, only to see an increase in phishing attempts. The emerging challenge to corporate America is remote work. The next challenge for CISOs and IT directors is educating remote workers on securing their networks and what to do to prevent man in the middle attacks.
