Tessian’s mission is to secure the human layer by empowering people to do their best work, without security getting in their way.

It’s been a whirlwind of a year and now – at last – employees around the world are heading back to the office. Well, at least some of them, some of the time.

As we all well know, the future of work is hybrid. 

In fact, employees demand it with 89% of employees wanting to work remotely part of the week. That means organizations have to adapt quickly and adopt new policies, collaboration tools, and ways of working. 

They’ll also have to evolve their cybersecurity strategies.

In our new research, Back to Work: Security Behaviors Report, we explore how employees’ security behaviors have changed and what security pitfalls IT teams need to address ASAP.

Here are 5 reasons to download the report.

1. You’ll get actionable advice and insights from other security leaders

We surveyed 200 IT decision makers to understand what’s top of mind and how they’re tackling challenges related to remote and hybrid working. That means this report is packed with helpful insights that will help guide your cybersecurity strategy. 

For example:

  • 69% of IT leaders believe ransomware will be a greater concern in a hybrid workplace
  • 54% of IT decision makers are worried remote workers will being infected devices and malware into the office
  • 56% of IT leaders believe employees have picked up bad cybersecurity behaviors while working from home (more on that below…)

2. You’ll have access to tons of additional resources 

Because this report was written to help security professionals, we’ve included four additional resources related to hybrid working, getting buy-in, phishing, and data loss prevention (DLP).

3. We share threat intelligence related to phishing scams in the last 6 months

Between January and June, we saw a huge uptick in suspicious and malicious emails containing one specific term….

In this chart, you can see that since the beginning of the year, we've seen one keyword used less frequently (blue), and another used more frequently (orange) in phishing attacks.

Find out what it is on page 16.

4. You’ll gain a better understanding of employees’ security behavior

To get the big picture, we surveyed 4,000 employees in addition to the IT decision makers we mentioned in point 1.

We found out that:

  • 1 in 3 employees think they can get away with riskier security behaviors when working remotely
  • 27% of workers are afraid to tell IT they’ve made a security mistake
  • Just 51% of employees say they always report when they receive a phishing email or click on a phishing link

How will you incorporate these insights into your hybrid security strategy? 

5. There’s plenty of good news

While the report is focused on how the threat landscape will change in a hybrid working environment, we also wanted to understand how the role of the CISO has changed (and is changing!) as a result.

We have good news! We found out that 59% of IT leaders think their roles and responsibilities have been recognized as more important over the last year and that 67% say they have a seat at the table when it comes to office reopening plans.
