Why remote working standards are a global problem
If a time traveler were to arrive in 2020 with no preconception of the global landscape, they would be shocked to see office spaces, commuter trains and city centers in a semi-permanent state of flux. The Covid-19 pandemic has made some of the busiest business districts on earth, from Canary Wharf to Wall Street, into ghost towns, as the workforce turn en-masse to remote working. The problems associated with this – from motivation to mental health – would need more space than an article to explore. What we can explore, however, are security practices in the remote workplace, and how the standards applied to this uniquely modern problem vary not only from enterprise to enterprise, but from country to country; an observation we had following a recent survey of 5000 remote employees across the USA, Ireland, the UK, France and Germany.
