原文：Corporate cybersecurity has been increasingly compromised since businesses and organizations began implementing work-from-home (WFH) policies in March as the pandemic continued its spread.
Malwarebytes in June set out to measure the how corporate IT leaders reacted to the pandemic; and what strategies are planned as they look forward. The antimalware software firm surveyed more than 200 IT experts at companies of various sizes. Those survey results, combined with the firm's internal telemetry, found that many IT heads might be overconfident about the cybersecurity protocols and procedures they have in place.
For example, 44 percent of the respondents did not provide cybersecurity training to the workforce, 45 percent did not perform security and online privacy analyses of software tools deemed necessary for the transition to WFH, and 18 percent said cybersecurity was not a priority for their employees.
Despite this, more than 70 percent of the respondents to Malwarebytes' survey gave their organization a score of 7/10 when asked to determine their readiness to transition to WFH.
"This may be an example of an often difficult-to-measure phenomenon that we call security hubris, also known as overconfidence in limited security measures deployed," the survey stated.
