The world continues to reckon with the standing changes that have accrued because of the global COVID-19 pandemic. As many started working from home last year, the world’s work-from-home workers saw hacking attempts and cyber technical difficulties increase.
No longer are workers within an arm’s reach from their IT department members. Many employees are facing hard to answer problems. Because of this many companies are training employees on how to handle cybersecurity issues.
According to a report from Tenable, 94% of those surveys stated they had experienced a cybersecurity attack within the last year. Those that were surveyed stated that this included a business impacting cyber-attack. Of those surveyed, a shocking 46% stated that they also experienced 5 or more cyberattacks within the last year.
According to Forbes, “While working from home yields many benefits, it comes with substantial drawbacks as well. In a home office, employees use home internet connections rather than the securer ones that IT professionals install in the office. Less secure home networks open up every device in an employee’s house to become a target for corporate espionage. And with almost half of employees lacking regular cybersecurity training, smaller businesses are at extra risk. The effects of a cyberattack can be more devastating for them.”
