The Unrehearsed scenario (COVID-19 pandemic) has put the Cybersecurity Team with two immediate priorities. First to secure the remote workforce arrangements on an unprecedented scale now that organizations have told employees to Zero traveling and Zero gathering, and government officials in many places have advised or ordered their people to stay home as much as possible. Second is maintaining the Confidentiality, Integrity, and Availability of consumer-facing network traffic as volumes spike.

The impact of COVID-19 has forced many around the world to rethink our daily lives and reconsider how the business around the globe will operate. The Pandemic has given birth to a new revolution.This is about more than just technology-driven change; it is an opportunity to help everyone, including leaders, policy-makers and people from all income groups and nations, to harness converging technologies in order to create an inclusive, human centered future.

During the past three months of the COVID-19 pandemic, the business world has grappled with the question of whether to or when to reopen offices. Companies in Europe, the Middle East and Asia are reopening offices based on declining rates of infection. We're seeing data that indicates a "productivity tax" due to on-going remote work:
- To what extent does continued remote work affect overall productivity?
- Which countries are leading the return to working in the office?
- Does a return to the office mean an increase or decrease in employee productivity?

As the weeks and months pass since the initial COVID-19 outbreak, the picture of our post-pandemic world becomes clearer. As a result, CIOs and IT teams are now addressing the following questions with a longer view:
- To what extent is remote employee productivity affected by application performance?
- Are remote employees working more? If so, is it because applications aren’t performing as well as employees expect?
- How much do companies need to invest in IT to ensure the same digital experience whether employees work in the office or at home?
