Data Breach

Corporations are allowing employees to work remotely to avoid coronavirus spread, but that could come at the expense of their cybersecurity health.

A largely remote workforce during COVID-19 will likely slow the detection of data intrusions and increase the overall cost of data breaches, cybersecurity lawyers said.

Corporate clients also expect challenging cybersecurity days ahead as employees continue to work remotely, according to IBM’s recent “Cost of a Data Breach” survey. A majority (54%) of the respondents said their corporation required remote work in response to COVID-19. Of those working remotely, 76% said the change would increase the time to identify and/or contain a data breach, while 70% said remote work would raise the cost of a breach.
