Recent events turned our working lives upside down. With very little notice, millions of people around the world were sent home from their offices to suddenly adopt a remote work lifestyle.

This work style comes with new cybersecurity considerations, and I urge organizations to adopt six key practices to adapt to our new working patterns.
