Returning to Work: Going Forward, Not Going Back
73% of workers in a recent survey by Microsoft (https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/worklab/work-trend-index/hybrid-work) plan to continue flexible remote work and said they want continued flexible remote work options -- what does this mean for security teams planning return-to-office plans that now include even more hybrid elements? While unquestionably a challenging undertaking, teams have a unique opportunity to revisit the successes and failures of their remote work expansions in 2020 and carry the best practices learned into their new expanded environments. This starts with assessing where and how much technical debt the rapid shift created, and sorting which interim solutions can be integrated and which must be phased out as part of a new flexible work strategy.
