It’s summertime, and everyone’s on vacation. What could possibly go wrong?
For the security team, the answer is “plenty.” Summer brings a set of new challenges to security organizations including employees taking more time off, often with their corporate laptops. Our own security personnel are taking vacation time, too, which makes staffing the security operations center (SOC) more challenging. More laptops in less secure locations plus less security staff on hand can add up to greater risk.
