In a survey from Malwarebytes
, 20% of respondents said that they experienced a security breach caused by a remote worker. To cut down on these accidents, some businesses have relied on set-ups like virtual private networks (VPNs) to conduct remote work, but their efficacy has been called into question. Looking ahead, some experts say that a better option is to install a zero-trust security system
that restricts access to files more stringently. According to a report from GetApp
, other issues that businesses will face include spotty security systems for remote workers, employees carelessly falling victim to things like malicious emails, unauthorized applications and limited mobile device security.
Business leaders would be wise to see how these trends might affect their own operations and then come up with strategic plans now to address them to thrive in the new year.
