Cyber Security After the Pandemic

Executive Summary
▪ Core principles of enterprise cyber security best practice had to be temporarily overlooked in the stampede to remote working and cloud service adoption that followed the COVID-19 lockdowns of March and April 2020.
▪ Fixing those mistakes to get cyber security posture back to pre-pandemic levels has been preoccupying security teams. But as the peak of the crisis passes, there’s an opportunity to exploit the impact of the pandemic to improve cyber security posture.
▪ The pandemic’s legacy for cyber security should be a secure innovation culture; convergence of network and security at the edge; better segmentation of network domains at home; and concerted action against ransomware.
