In the aftermath of the pandemic, two related arguments have emerged:
- Attacks on data security,
- Working from home.
In fact, there is an increased incidence of attacks, especially via e-mail, seeking to exploit the anxiety linked to the pandemic.
These attacks may involve replacing the identity of the sender, thanks in part to the theft of credentials, in order to create a semblance of reliability.
In addition, many people work from home, making it more difficult to keep connections and systems secure.
There are many checklists and materials on how to address these challenges. It may be useful to set some guiding principles for choosing between the various alternatives.
