3 Reasons Why Safety Matters Now More Than Ever

3 Reasons Why Safety Matters Now More Than Ever

Many workers may never return to the office. The increased number of locations where teams are working translates to more access points for hackers to exploit and gain access to a business’s network. Despite all the upsides of allowing teams to work from wherever they are most productive, businesses must look at their security infrastructure through a new lens. Businesses need solutions that allow teams to work from anywhere without sacrificing security. 2. The threats continue to grow.

1. We will continue to work from different locations. Now is the time to rectify those decisions, and here are three reasons why.

The idea of remote work predates the pandemic. It took new urgency amid lockdowns, and many organizations learned they could allow their teams to work from outside the office and maintain their productivity. Many small-to-medium-sized businesses (SMBs) deployed solutions and platforms to help them survive the pandemic. However, some businesses may have skimped on security to keep costs down amid the uncertainty of the last year.

While the targeting of major corporations like a pipeline company makes headlines globally, hackers don’t discriminate. They will target anyone, and small businesses are not under the radar. According to CNBC, research shows that 43% of online attacks target small businesses, and a mere 14% are prepared to defend themselves. Additionally, as ZDNet reported, CrowdStrike research revealed hackers are employing increasingly sophisticated methods to wreak havoc. 3. The threats are more significant than ever.

Anecdotal evidence indicates the number has continued to increase, even if they don’t always make international news. Let’s be honest; bad actors are unlikely to change their ways anytime soon, making it more important than ever for businesses to maintain their vigilance. Hackers and other bad actors work around the clock, and they didn’t slow their efforts just because the world faced a pandemic. As of April 2020, closer to the pandemic’s start, the FBI said they saw the number of cybercrimes reported increase by upwards of 300% since the pandemic began.
