6 security shortcomings that COVID-19 exposed


A year ago, in the fall of 2019, Mike Zachman ran a security drill for his company, Zebra Technologies Corp.

Zachman, who as chief security officer oversees cybersecurity as well as product security and physical security, had focused the exercise on business continuity to determine how well the company’s plans would hold up.

He had organized similar events in the past, running through both a mock ransomware attack and a staged natural disaster that took out a data center. So, to further test his company, he came up with a new scenario for 2019: a theoretical pandemic, complete with office workers undergoing temperature checks.
