IT teams have had to switch gears in order to support the sudden transition to remote working. Now, IT leaders are faced with what the “new normal” of their industry looks like.
With remote working arrangements clearly here to stay, IT teams will need to ramp up how they can keep distributed workers safe.
Technology is more crucial than ever to the workplace, especially with remote workers, so IT professionals need methods to keep up with these work environments.
According to an ISACA survey, 87% of IT professionals said that the quick shift to remote working increased protection and privacy risks.
One way to keep companies safe with these new work arrangements is to build in security into the hardware of PCs.
This means incorporating hardware-enabled security systems that feature threat detection capabilities to help prevent any potential risks.
Additionally, IT teams should utilize tools that create more secure remote management and allow them to handle potential problems no matter when and where they occur.
These professionals should also be ready to prepare for multiple security risks and continue investing in solutions to improve their processes.
This means teams should create security platforms that make implementing company wide updates easier.
