Global remote work transitions fail to consider security gaps


Security measures and password best practices have not taken priority in many regions during the shift to remote work due to the COVID-19 pandemic, according to a survey by OneLogin.

Nearly 1 in 5 (17.4%) global respondents have shared their work device password with either their spouse or child, potentially exposing corporate data.

External threats were also a factor with 36% of global respondents admitting they have not changed their home Wi-Fi password in more than a year, leaving corporate devices exposed to a potential security breach.
