Title:Impact of a Global Pandemic on Information Security
Authors:Williams, Taylor
Date Issued:Nov 2020
Publisher:University of Hawaiʻi — West Oʻahu
Abstract:The start of the year brought with it the first global pandemic in the age of technology. Never before has technology been as advanced and as a result we are presented with a new set of problems not present during past pandemics. Businesses have elected for employees to work from home and according to, the number of employees in the United States working remotely over 5+ days per week has increased from 17% to 44% Because of this increase in the remote workforce, many companies have been attempting to find ways to support employee access to critical processes and data while maintaining the security of systems and networks. With this increase in employees working from home and associated vulnerabilities, organizations are becoming increasingly concerned about cybersecurity threats and attacks. The goal of this project is to determine if an increase in the number and type of cybersecurity attacks are attributable to remote workforce requirements in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
