In-person interaction is definitely missed, but personally, and professionally, remote work has become the new normal that we all are adjusting to. While there remains uncertainty around how our future with COVID-19 will unfold, innovation is a major key factor for survivors.

The adoption of more internet-enabled applications for communication, production, and storage has given rise to a more dynamic workforce that’s ready to do business anytime, anywhere, and all but eliminated the need for everyone to be in the same building, or even the same country, to get things done. There are currently more people doing EVERYTHING in remote locations. Working from home is convenient for everyone – even for cyber-criminals perpetrating new attacks. Cyber crime is at an all-time high, and hackers are setting their sights on small and medium businesses who are “low hanging fruit.” To drive home this point, there were more than 12,000 publicly disclosed software vulnerabilities last year. Today those numbers are increasing rapidly.
