This is also a fact that despite the result; only one or two from five surveyed companies are taking this issue seriously and implementing the accredited security measure. In these companies there are 34% big firms and 12% small-scale businesses are included.

On the issue of cyber security, BCC chairman, Shevaun Haviland, said that because of huge shifting of remote work and uses of cloud shifting, in 24 hours, almost ten thousand employees work from home. Considering this scenario, the figure is not that surprising.

Moreover, 50% of entrepreneurs agree with this statement of BCC chairmen, 10% strongly agree, 45% agree but they also believe that there can be an alternative. 18% disagree with this and 20% said that they are still not shifted to the “work from home” mode.

As the fifth wave is taking its grip on the world, it seems that people will not be going back to their workplace soon. Head of small business at Cisco UK & Ireland said businessmen should change their mode of work and start focusing on remote work and adopting the new environment.
