Pandemic impact report: Security leaders weigh in
In early March, as I prepared to fly home from a business trip to Seattle, we began hearing stories of U.S. businesses sending their workers home with the expectation that they may be working from home for weeks, if not months. CISOs started to share stories of employees exiting their offices with monitors under one arm and desktop computer systems under the other. With social and work restrictions imposed by governments and businesses in response to the novel coronavirus COVID-19, organizations around the U.S. were about to come face-to-face with “the new normal,” and it was going to be anything but normal. From the beginning it was clear that the rules we have operated under for decades were about to change.
