I.T. Security working from home, COVID, WFH
In 2020 the COVID-19 viral pandemic circled the globe and impacted the population of the world. Workers who typically commuted to an office were forced to work from home. Faced with concerns such as where they would physically do their work, to who would watch their children during the workday (as schools shut down) societal challenges we have never seen before became a new reality. In a matter of months, infrastructure needs shifted as millions of people no longer commuted to work. Information technology infrastructure, as well as power, internet, and roadway infrastructures all needed to adjust to changes in demand. With many of these changes looking to become permanent, the global information technology security landscape is scrambling to keep up. This paper will discuss the impacts of COVID-19 on many aspects of life, and the impacts they have on information technology security.
