Malicious Intent Not the Majority of Cybersecurity Violations by Remote Work

Talent recruiting and retention challenges, continued COVID-19 protocols, work/life balance rethinking, and real estate cost savings, are among the major reasons why companies maintain a remote work culture. To implement or expand remote work, technology platforms of all kinds were either purchased or upgraded in record numbers and in response to the data flow demand caused by talent working across borders. 

Decentralizing of these platforms to accommodate the worker’s locations has led to increased cybersecurity protections, however breaches and violations remain a challenge. The origins are not criminal, they’re human nature. And their intention is not to hurt, but rather a reaction to work/life stress.
