The distributed remote working that we have adopted today to combat the COVID-19 pandemic, may become the norm tomorrow. However, employees working from home rarely have the same security that is integral to offices.
The cybersecurity industry’s response has been a call to embrace Zero Trust Security – where the belief is not to trust anything inside or outside the perimeters of the work landscape but to verify anything and everything that’s trying to connect to the organization’s systems. Recently, in just three weeks we moved 80 percent of our 240,000+ global employees to securely work from their homes. Our strategy was to move to remote working by design, securing it at scale and securing it for the future.
In short: Digital Trust. Assured. And here’s what that entails:
Dealing with the expanding and new threat surface
Protecting against data breaches and attacks on remote assets
Balancing security with user experience and productivity
Prioritizing and re-calibrating governance and compliance
Making cybersecurity a foundation for the new digital era
