The COVID-19 situation has accelerated the adoption of digital transformation across governments, businesses and societies. Safety and security concerns, specifically cyber, on the evolving use of digital tools are at the forefront as a consequence of this rapid technological adoption.
New data protection regulations have recently been adopted by governments to safeguard the privacy of individuals and companies, however identifying a balance between access to individual data and data privacy remains a major challenge.
In parallel, the combination of more remote-work environment coupled with increasing momentum of digital information raises security concerns, as people working from home often have fewer cyber protection tools than they would have in their workplaces.
