Working from home is leaving firms and individuals vulnerable to Cyber crime

Recent Cyber attacks have highlighted the increased vulnerability of firms and individuals. A recent survey from the UK and US-based security firm, Tessian, found that 56% of senior IT technicians believe their employees have picked up bad cyber-security habits while working from home.

Whilst nearly two in five (39%) employees admitted that their cyber-security practices at home were less thorough than those practised in the office, with half admitting that this is a result of feeling less scrutinised by their IT departments now, than prior to Covid. The increased use of video conferencing facilities has also been a contributing factor to this rise in Cyber crime.
