The on-going pandemic has changed how many businesses operate. This has included a shift toward a work-from-home, or remote work, model which reduces the risk from exposure while at the same time allowing more flexibility to employee schedules. As things were shutting down, many businesses quickly scrambled to set up options to continue conducting their business operations by setting up capabilities that would allow their employees to work remotely. During this push to get to a remote work capability, it is likely that things were missed along the way, which leads to several questions such as, How secure did these businesses set up their remote work capabilities? Are they vulnerable? What about the behaviors of their employees? Do they know or practice good cyber hygiene? and more.
