A new study from Sectigo and Wakefield Research says the transition to widespread remote
work presented myriad business challenges and security risks for the employees on the front lines of IT security.
The report is based on 500 IT professionals in the U.S., Canada, Germany, France, Ireland and the UK. The 2020 Work-From-Home IT Impact Study says, 86% of IT professionals report challenges in managing the digital identity of users, devices, and processes at their organizations. Nearly 60% of IT professionals expect the number of remote workers to increase after offices reopen. The report notes that 44% of organizations delayed cyber security initiatives for one month or more while they focused on remote work setup.
