Working from home amidst the Covid-19 crisis has invited unprecedented challenges to cybersecurity. In this regard, OneLogin has released its 2020 global survey report on remote work trends and practices. The report features a global survey of 5,000 employees who started working remotely since the outbreak of COVID-19.
Furthermore, it indicates the extent to which employees use corporate devices for non-work related activity, regardless of cybersecurity hazards.
As per the survey – 33% of workers use their official Zoom account for online socializing. Moreover, 50% of organizations have not established cybersecurity guidelines for remote work.
This report suggests best practices to enable a healthy remote workforce, such as:
- Communicating remote work policies and expectations
- Provisioning work computers and other devices
- Enabling access to business-critical applications
- Setting up Network/VPN access & ensuring secure login
