Before COVID-19 made working from home more the rule than the exception, “remote cyber talent” was not a term that you were likely to hear emerge from a cyber executive’s mouth.
The pandemic has changed that.
The new realities forced on us by the novel coronavirus have blown up many long-held beliefs. One of them is that cyber teams must be located onsite and/or co-located in order to work with maximum efficiency. At Booz Allen, in our work providing clients in business and government with a full range of cyber support, we’ve seen positive results from the shift toward remote work. As cyber leaders adapt and grow their cyber talent pools for the 21st century, we expect this trend toward more flexible work arrangements to continue, even after the pandemic is brought under control.
