Cybersecurity professionals are being repurposed during COVID-19 pandemic


Some of the 256 professionals surveyed said they are tracking as many as double the number of incidents, according to the (ISC)², a global nonprofit association of certified cybersecurity professionals.

The (ISC)2 COVID-19 Cybersecurity Pulse Survey conducted earlier this month also found that 90% of respondents are now themselves working remotely full time.

While 81% of respondents said their organizations view security as an essential function right now, 47% said they have been taken off some or all of their typical security duties to assist with other IT-related tasks, such as equipping a mobile workforce, (ISC)2 said.
