With the shift of remote work during COVID-19, and the ongoing lockdowns, some organisations are still finding themselves in a hybrid work environment, with employees doing a mixture of work at home and in the office. As business leaders you need to be aware of the risks that this arrangement poses for your organisation’s cybersecurity.
In addition to the increased use of personal devices for work tasks and work being done on insecure home networks, there has also been a shift with employees seeing work devices as personal devices, leading them to use the devices for personal uses that pose a greater security risk.
To combat the increased risk, your IT staff need to be aware of these challenges and there needs to be policies and systems in place that can combat them. One method to do this is by enhancing endpoint protection and implementing a zero trust architecture.
