When companies and organizations shifted to remote work arrangements in response to the Covid-19 pandemic, leadership teams may have viewed it as a temporary situation. “Tech plans” in the beginning may have simply consisted of noting which employees had taken home a computer to work on.
IT leaders should keep security top of mind when managing technology by onboarding tools that enable a holistic understanding of exactly who has access to what, at any given level of access. As businesses become increasingly remote and cloud-oriented, employees should also be encouraged to coordinate with IT staff in vetting processes that will help the IT team maintain an understanding of every connected endpoint. – Archie Agarwal, ThreatModeler Software, Inc.
