Update: Cybersecurity Challenges, Solutions Grow with Telework Shifts

One lesson learned is that “organizations are not a monolithic entity,” said John Dickson, principal at Denim Group, a cybersecurity consulting firm based in San Antonio, Texas.

Teams whose work lent itself well to working from home have adapted with few hurdles to new processes. Other functions that required physical interaction — notably including finance and procurement — have faced greater challenges. Many financial processes require physical signatures and other measures designed to mitigate risk of fraud or embezzlement, which cannot function in a fully remote environment. While there are some alternatives, like DocuSign, in the interim some agencies are postponing purchasing orders or designating small teams of essential personnel to carry out these critical duties in person.
