The New Normal has forced a merger of our personal and our work lives. Work-from-home (WFH) arrangements are now standard for many companies. This has led to a reorganization of the office infrastructure over a broader physical space but tethered together by public infrastructure and the protocols that run the Internet. Resources designed mainly for recreation have now been pressed into service for commercial use. Dining rooms are now work spaces and mobile devices now serve as main sources of information and connection to the broader workstreams in these firms. As a result, the security risks for all of these firms have risen exponentially. Home wi-fi networks have weaker security protocols and do not enjoy the same level of safety afforded by enterprise networks.
In this episode of Digital Transformation Thursdays, we will discuss these challenges, the principles that underlie information security, and the means to achieve them in the New Normal.
