With recent events, many organizations have quickly switched from onsite offices to a fully remote workforce and with inability to control the spread of this virus at this point some businesses are looking at working remote as a long-term solution and potentially the new normal. While remote work was growing in popularity before it became a necessity, there are still many people across industries like government, finance and education who have never had to work like this before. For these types of industries, the move to a remote working model came quickly rather than being able to transition gradually. They’re now required to navigate an entirely different way of getting their jobs done while helping their kids with homeschooling and many other chores while working from home. If more organizations are seeing that their employees can be just as productive from their homes, it could accelerate a recent push to expand decentralized workforce. Any company that has seen effective remote work during the pandemic will consider expanding it to cut office costs and expanding their workforce beyond their city wall.

Gartner claims there are will be over 7 billion connected “things” for business use by 2020. International organizations in particular must now ensure they build security into every new IoT system, or face compliance issues from GDPR and NIS Directive regulators. US firms are going to invest the most in IoT in the coming 12 months: $2.8m. There’s a sizable minority (42%) of organizations involving security teams early on in IoT projects, but conversely the largest number globally (72%) who claim they always define their security needs during projects. However, just 34% said the CISO is ultimately responsible for IoT security, among the lowest worldwide. The company board may discuss the incident recovery plan but have little oversight of the way the company is securing IoT devices in the first place.
