To adapt to changing environments caused by stay-at-home orders and work-from-home (WFH) directives, businesses have had to rapidly shift their operating models. With more employees working from home than ever before, security teams have had to adopt new technologies and protocols to enable workers and continue to provide services to customers.
With that adoption and surge in the use of digital platforms, ZeroFOX has identified an uptick in digital threats targeting those platforms, from phishing to information leakage to fraud and scams. In order to operate securely in this new remote-first work environment, security teams must review previously established security protocols and evolve practices to meet new standards. This paper reviews the top threats facing organizations in this new remote work environment and outlines steps security teams can take to mitigate those threats.
