When the world changed in mid-March, nearly all employees were suddenly working from home. Many CISOs and corporate executives viewed this as a temporary situation at the time. But as COVID infection rates continue to climb in various states and geographies, many companies are extending their work-from-home policies into 2021 and beyond to protect their employees.
Indeed, 75 percent of the 150+ CISOs, security and technology professionals surveyed by HMG Strategy expect their workforces to remain highly distributed for the foreseeable future.
While CISOs and their teams have successfully protected the remote enterprise during these unprecedented times, many security tactics have been fashioned as a short-term approach. As enterprise companies continue to have the bulk of their employees working remotely for the foreseeable future, CISOs must develop longer-term security strategies that continue to safeguard remote employees while protecting the distributed enterprise.
