Organisations continue to face cyber security challenges with hybrid working patterns
Coronavirus caused many organisations to move to home working at a greater speed and scale than many had foreseen or prepared for.
As organisations look to make hybrid working patterns a permanent option for staff the cyber security challenges brought by home working continue.
A recent survey from Palo Alto Networks looked at the impact of working from home decisions. 44% stated that while money was spent improving remote access to corporate networks it was not matched by investment in cyber security. Meanwhile 21% said little had changed in their existing network architecture or security.
The NCSC issued guidance on preparing for home working and using video conferencing tools (availability of good communications was one of the tools cited that helped reduce security incidents). Further guidance on cloud security and device security is also available from the NCSC.
