Security is a Team Sport – Engaging your organization in a work from home world
Today, security is a concern and the responsibility of every employee in an organization, it’s no longer left to just the security and IT team. Every employee in an organization needs to be better trained about how cybersecurity directly impacts their role. Generic security webinars or onboarding training of the past are no longer sufficient to address the growing threat landscape and risks businesses face today. Based on the new hybrid workforce – in and out of the office amid the pandemic – we need to be agile and adapt to changing environments so we’re ready for the next type of normal. With leading tech companies like Google, Twitter and Facebook allowing remote work indefinitely, we’re going to see more flexibility in the workplace, and with that comes unprecedented threats and risks and the heightened need for security. Security can no longer be an afterthought. The pandemic has accelerated the need for security to be a team sport, across the organization with ongoing trainings as a part of career development, and that is likely here to stay.
