In the pre-COVID-19 era, most employees worked from offices, where the Local Area Network (LAN) as well as the desktops/laptops were adequately secured.
Since the onset of the covid-19 pandemic, organizations and federal agencies have been scrambling to secure their systems and create remote work contingency plans to keep continuity for their business matters.

b. 90% of the global organizations that responded to the survey suggested that cyberattacks against their company have increased in 12 months from October 2019 to the present.
c. 91% of all global respondents stated that they had seen an increase in overall cyberattacks as a result of employees working from home.”
