More than half of remote workers have improved their cybersecurity awareness during Covid-19

From: RegTech Analyst 

While many experts have feared that remote working will increase the risk of breaches, it seems like the majority of Australian professionals working from home has improved their cybersecurity awareness during lockdown.

New research from cybersecurity company Trend Micro has found that 67% of remote workers have increased their cybersecurity awareness during Covid-19 related lockdowns. Yet, that doesn’t mean that the risk is over as many still break the rules due to limited understanding or resource constraints.

For instance, while 61% acknowledge that using non-work applications on a corporate device is a security risk, 51% said they still did so. Even worse, 68% had actually uploaded corporate data to that application.
