COVID-19 and Cyber Resilience: How are Security Professionals Coping?

April 28, 2020 Leave a comment DRI Admin

Cybersecurity professionals weighed in on how they’re managing during the COVID-19 pandemic, and their responses reveal the incredible amount of pressure to keep their organizations and employees safe.

81% of respondents to the ISC2 COVID-19 Cybersecurity Pulse Survey say their job function has changed during the pandemic. For one thing, 96% of respondents said their organizations have closed their physical work environments, transitioning to work-from-home policies for employees. 23% said cybersecurity incidents had increased since transitioning to remote work.

Among the major challenges they are facing, many highlighted a lack of hardware to support the influx of remote workers and a struggle to juggle deployment remote technology with proper security levels, as well as helping users understand and follow safe practices.

One of the survey respondents commented:

“Employers now face the prospect of doing what they should have done long before: enact contingency plans for large-scale remote work due to natural or man-made disasters. Enabling remote work also has the benefit of appealing to potential employees when recruitment is a concern.”
