The recent pandemic has been a financial burden across the country while also forcing businesses to transition to a work from home environment where IT and security departments were tasked with making sure their security infrastructure were prepared. As the country slowly begins to reopen, organizations may not have the necessary funds to spend on areas of their business, including security. Knowing what security best practices to prioritize can help organizations reduce risks, while getting back to work, without breaking the bank.

- Cyber Security Today – A look at the future of work - The increase in people working from home seems to be permanent. However, it will mean a few things:
- Organizations will have to toughen their cybersecurity policies to deal with the increased risks of employees using their own computers.
- IT will have to make sure all the applications allowing remote access to the organization are locked down.
- Employees will have to be smarter and safer using computers from home.
- Why Securing Endpoints Is The Future Of Cybersecurity - According to Verizon’s 2020 Data Breach Investigations Report (DBIR):
- 70% of breaches are perpetrated by external actors, making endpoint security a high priority in any cybersecurity strategy.
- Attacks on Web apps accessed from endpoints were part of 43% of breaches, more than double the results from last year.
- The lack of diligence around Asset Management is creating new threat surfaces as organizations often don’t know the current health, configurations, or locations of their systems and devices.# Cloud assets were involved in about 24% of breaches this year, while on-premises assets are still 70%.
- Over 80% of breaches within hacking involve brute force or the use of lost or stolen credentials.
- IT hiring rose in May, but tech sector bled 34K jobs - According to a review of U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) data from IT trade organization CompTIA:
- Employers across sectors added 28,000 technology workers in May
- The increase in tech positions indicates a sign of recovery for national tech employment, which had previously shed 19,000 positions in March
- The unemployment rates for tech occupations showed signs of improvement in May, dropping to 3.7% from 4.3% in April
