Jack Mannino, CEO of security firm nVisium, agrees that organizations of all sizes now need to think more strategically about cybersecurity investments and how best to protect workers, data and equipment that are now beyond the corporate walls and likely not returning.
“The shift to remote work has prompted many organizations to make significant new investments in their IT systems and infrastructure,” Mannino said. “While the shift has already happened for many, the security debt created in the process has not been addressed in many places. Securing a remote workforce requires a different mindset and presents an expanded perimeter for an attack.”
At the same time, the need for more intensive cybersecurity to protect remote workers means that businesses could start looking toward more cutting-edge approaches, such as investing in a zero trust model, to provide a more robust approach to these frequent attacks.
