More employees are working from home amidst the global pandemic, but a majority do so without proper training on how to ensure they can keep their organisation safe. More than half are using their personal devices to carry out work tasks, even as they believe these devices are not fully secure against advanced security threats.
And this is despite 54% of these employees believing their organisations are more likely to experience a serious cyberattack during the COVID-19 pandemic than they would before the outbreak, according to findings from CrowdStrike’s 2020 Work Security Index. Conducted by YouGov, the online study polled 4,048 senior decision-makers globally including 1,780 from four Asia-Pacific markets: 252 from Singapore, 526 in India, 502 from Japan, and 500 in Australia.
The report confirmed that 59% of respondents across this region now were working remotely more often than they did before due to the pandemic, with 74% in Singapore and 69% in India doing so.
