IDS
Your cool network IDS that was watching the network in the building isn't going to do much now, even if the employee is using a VPN, if they're only using one thing on the internal network." IDS would work as long as configured properly and with enough resources available to process higher level of traffic.

Web sopt
the report also notes that attacks against web applications have doubled from the previous year to 43%. This makes sense, we are on more web apps than before, so targeting web applications.

My data?
In times of economic uncertainty, employees tend to protect what they believe is theirs, and attempt to take sensitive data prior to being possibly laid off. This makes sense. They would be surprised when they hear it is not their data tough.

USB
employees copied company data to USB drives 123% more than before the pandemic's onset, with 74% of that data marked as "classified." Interesting, why would anybody do that in any case. That is risk by itself, lock USB ports.
