Evident change in organizational culture
As the dust of the first COVID wave has settled  and countries are opening up and trying to get to a mode of "new normal  " we see  top managemnt driving  change to the organizatioanl culture .

Driving cultrual change  requires trainig - this includes with no doubt Cyber defense trainig to people and teams that ahd nothin to do with this is the past  

Operational aspects that were not heard of or pushed aside for years happened within days . Hopefully the same openess and flexibility mode happens with the right cyber defense plan . From  my  perosnal experice I see that some do and some dont. It will be intersting to see waht industires will catch up faster than others

Insightful Covid 19 Cyber security post
Great post with a lot of good insight for practical Covid 19 steps. I think using this time to schedule one on one meetings is especially important. With c-suite execs having events postponed and travel plans stopped, there's never been a better time to review your available security plans.

Our COO also did an interview discussing practical steps for COVID 19 and IT practices and the impact that it has had on the IT environmnet. I would be interested in your feedback and perspective.

Re: Insightful Covid 19 Cyber security post
Quite smart of your COO. I think in times like this what is most appropriately needed is direction from the top. Many private organizations as well as sections of government have failed in this regard. To define a path forward. Otherwise the masses are just marching in the dark.

A great read
I'm used to everybody being so concentrated at barely keeping the head above the water and living the here and now without thinking about the future.
It's great seeing someone putting the effort to think about the longer-term issues.
It's always valuable, and especially so in such trying times.
