These days we are living in strange times. And strange times are forcing us to develop new ways of agility, redefining our working models and developing a new normal -- which means for many of us, working at home. However, the success of working from home doesn’t come easily and there are many challenges one has to cope with – starting from finding a quiet spot to take phone calls to creating a proper work-life harmony within your four walls. But, certainly one of biggest challenges – and the easiest one to overlook – maintaining security.

Security rules and data protection processes seemingly thrown out the proverbial window. What now seems common is a true nightmare for all security and IT workers. It’s like serving the favorite meal for cybercriminals on a silver platter – sensitive data.
