A full-time mass work from home (WFH) workforce was once considered an extreme risk scenario that few risk or security professionals even bothered to think about.
Unfortunately, within a single day, businesses worldwide had to face such a reality. Their 3-year long digital transformation strategy was forced to become a 3-week sprint during which offices were abandoned, and people started working from home.
Like in an eerie doomsday movie, servers were left on in the office, but nobody was sitting in the chairs.
While everyone hopes that the world returns to its previous state, it’s evident that work dynamics have changed forever. From now on, we can assume a hybrid work environment.
Even companies that will require their employees to arrive daily at their offices recognize that they have undergone a digital transformation, and work from home habits will remain.
