Learning from last year’s shift to a remote workforce can help dictate how operations should evolve. New data from Microsoft points at the need to better secure remote workers.
Microsoft’s New Future of Work Report (subtitled Research from Microsoft into the Pandemic’s Impact on Work Practices) offers insight into how businesses have changed the way they work, what challenges exist, and what they’re doing to thrive. One of the topics within this pretty extensive 65-page report is a section on IT and Security where security professionals including SOC Analysts, security admins and CISOs were polled to understand how remote working has impacted the state of organizational security. Within this section are some pretty eye-opening stats:
One of the biggest issues IT faced, according to the report, was the lack of “end-user security education”, seen as the largest single long term impacting issue by 37% of organizations.
I’m obviously a huge advocate for Security Awareness Training , so it’s good to see organizations waking up to the material impact the lack of it can have on an organizations security posture – both short- and long-term.
If you have a material portion of your remote workforce, putting new school Security Awareness Training in place may be the needed next step to help close the security gaps that exist because of the shift to working remotely.
