COVID-19 has changed the way we interact with technology and focused renewed attention on data privacy and security. U.S. companies are grappling with the enhanced business and legal risks associated with remote working, especially their vulnerability to cyberattacks.

Currently, cyberattacks rank as the fastest growing crime in the U.S., according to the Information Systems Audit and Control Association (ISACA). Globally, cybercrime damages were estimated by ISACA to reach $6 trillion by 2021.

That alarming vulnerability of mission-critical information could continue. Rather than disappear as a relic of pandemic, the remote-work trend may become permanent, or at least morph into a hybrid model. It’s imperative that businesses intending to retain (or introduce) remote-work infrastructures take steps to minimize exposure from these increasing cybersecurity risks.
