Cyberattackers are preying on the susceptibility of newly remote workers by offering lures and traps that imitate credible sources. As organisations stabilise their current operations, security leaders can put the right controls in place to create a safe and secure working environment for their enterprise.
Accenture sets out the four crucial elements of adaptive security:
1) Secure mindset - Security leaders continue to play a role in maintaining the health and well-being of the workforce, which is essential for the smooth running of the enterprise and helps to mitigate risks to the larger community.
2) Secure network access - Security leaders can inform employees about known vulnerabilities and make sure their teams are diligent when it comes to testing and intelligence.
3) Secure work environments - With workforces now remote, security leaders need to shift the information-security focus from an enterprise infrastructure to a virtual and cloud environment.
4) Secure collaboration - Security leaders are well-placed to evaluate and promote solutions that mean distributed teams can connect and collaborate safely, securely and effectively – helping their organisations to create better employee experiences, while making them more productive.
