The adjustment, forced upon us by the health pandemic, could be fleeting or deeply embedded for months or years to come. Adapting to this will be crucial for society to move on, but also for businesses to survive. A nascent ‘Isolation Economy’ has developed that has seen certain sectors flourish at the expense of others.
With the stampede to digital post-COVID, many businesses are learning the hard and expensive way that the risks presented by cyber threats cannot be underestimated. Working from home is what caused the biggest Cyber changes across the world and is a new Cyber risk for all businesses as we embrace hybrid working. Effective cybersecurity goes well beyond installing a firewall or implementing a single IT project.
The next steps for businesses are already centered around planning beyond the current lockdowns. Getting business-ready beyond the Isolation Economy needs to specifically include getting your business Cyber ready.
Our next webinar “Cybersecurity and the Isolation Economy” can be the beginning of that preparation, irrespective of your company’s size or industry.
