“The Challenge of Smart Working at the Time of Covid-19” (The SMEs Guide to Save your Business, Protect your Data and Maintain Control) is a multilingual 75-page white paper addressed to small and medium-sized enterprises, managers and all those who want to react to the Covid-19 pandemic in an organized way.
When Vadim Comanescu (CEO of Syneto) called me with the idea of creating a white paper on the security implications related to Smart Working, I was immediately interested, considering the period.
It was March 18, 2020 and the entire world had just woken up in the COVID-19 pandemic.
So I started drafting some thoughts and to elaborate them inside a more structured guide, addressed to companies, managers and all those who want to react to the current situation in an organized way.
For the past 10 years I worked in the field of government interceptions, dealing with offensive hacking techniques and traveling in 50+ countries around the world: a sort of adventurous way of working and living, you may say. Yes, something like that, but… all this was about to change.
The uncertain health situation that is occurring during the writing of this document and the inevitable changes in social interaction that will result from it on global scale, force all organizations to act quickly in order to modify internal procedures, safeguard their business and increase their chances of survival.
Most exposed subjects to this new situation are undoubtedly the small and medium-sized enterprises, which still seem to be uninterested in the topic.
This white paper aims to deal with the topic of Smart Working from an emergency point of view, that is, how to make an organization reacting quickly, effectively and safely during an emergency time.
And make it work.
