Re: This will only get worse because...
I'm not so convinced that working remotely would increase this cost. The article states that these services are being provided to other departments. I think that working remotely would further segment departments from a social aspect, thus having an employee from a different department less likely request this type of help. Just my opinion.

Remote working is on the up, as people are using private devices more often and unsecured wifi networks to do work related activites, including uploading sensitive docs to cloud storage. Cybsafe is best to use to educate your workforce and update them with real time threat intelligence.
