How many “new normal” are we going to have? Over the last year the first “new normal” was businesses moving their workforce over to remote working whilst many parents were also juggling home-schooling and the impact on emotions their families and themselves were going through too.
No one had a warning to prepare for any of this, some organisations had options for some remote working, however not the whole business and not five days a week. The IT departments across the world have had probably the busiest, most stressful periods of their careers.
All of this was done rapidly and opened up a whole new opportunity for cyber-criminals to gain access to organisation’s networks, data and much more. We saw a huge rise in malicious websites, phishing, smishing and much more. Organisations became more vulnerable in their quests to move everyone over to working from home at such short notice and with major threats that come with people working from their own Wi-Fi, devices, being nervous about many things such as their health, the status of their job and not being super aware of cyber-security.
We think it is safe to say the majority of us are looking forward to returning to our usual lifestyles, it is very clear that what was normal pre-pandemic will not be the same post-pandemic. We have been informed on plans that begin to phase out restrictions and lead to the reopening of businesses in another ‘new normal’.
Now that we have a planned exit strategy, any “quick fixes” that were carried out to enable remote working need serious attention before any harm can be caused to organisations. Cyber-crime ‘never sleeps’ and cyber-criminals will be aware that there will be many loop holes they can use to gain access. Now is the best time to research solutions that will build a strong resilience against cyber-attacks and implement them.
