In 2020, we’ve seen the rate of digitalisation accelerate faster than any year in history. This acceleration has come with implications for organisation’s and their cybersecurity posture. Today, organisations have a much more hybrid workforce than they did at the start of 2020. This has resulted in a dramatic shift in organisations looking at how they maximise productivity with teams working from home and the workplace. In addition, there is a big focus on making those workspaces (offices, factories, retail, etc.) safe spaces for those who occupy them. Technology is playing a major role in both these considerations. Wrapped around this, is the really important issue of cybersecurity. We often describe cybersecurity as the catalyst for innovation, because if you can’t get the security right, often the innovation can’t be implemented.

Within most modern businesses, workforces are finding themselves more dispersed than ever before. The advance of new technologies, combined with unprecedented global events, have forced many businesses to go remote – with workers clocking in from home, the local coffee shop, or anywhere with a decent internet connection.
