The COVID-19 pandemic crisis unfolds uncertainty and warns leaders to prepare for what is coming next.
The new reality is already at the gate we have to adapt and accelerate to become next-gen-resilient and next-gen-agile.
Hybrid workforce is the solution that is been adapted rapidly within the organizations world wide, with employees using their personal devices, personal WiFi, personal security technology and already working from home and public places.
Are they safe to connect?
There are several safety concerns that we will have to address in a hybrid workplace, where people move in and out of office and home and even connect from public places to work, this sometimes may be a nightmare from cyber security perspective if not planned and executed well.
The blend of office and remote work will be appreciated by employees also increasing their productivity and wellbeing, however there are many security challenges. So, in a hybrid work environment we should address the security issues around integrity of data, security, technical capacity and capability, and business outcomes by reviewing employee behavior. Security is always a priority, but remote and hybrid work environments continue to introduce new challenges and complexities that most organizations have yet to reconcile.
