Managing the Changing Working Environment

The impact of the COVID-19 virus has resulted in an unprecedented explosion in working from home. With this fundamental change in the working environment comes new risks.

Protecting Business as Usual

As remote working becomes the new norm, there is an opportunity to retest established continuity procedures and ensure that staff are familiar with how they apply in the new working environment

Understanding the Growing Risk

In the context of a global pandemic, the risk lens inevitably turns to its immediate impact on business operations and the wellbeing of staff, however it is important to maintain vigilance of the risks associated with cyber. They haven’t gone away and, in some cases, may be more acute.

Communicating with the Board

With organisations under pressure, clear and succinct communication around the changing cyber risk is an imperative.

Looking to the Future

In unusual times it is perhaps difficult to think beyond the short term. However, when this pandemic is over, there will be a need to reset the organisation and adapt to the new future and the cyber risks that this will bring.
