As the world focused on the pandemic in 2020, the security industry had to adjust to a rapidly changing landscape. In retail, businesses enforced security guards to implement public health guidelines and keep customers safe. Online, office workers transitioned to home office setups, in developing alarming deficiencies in the IT security infrastructure.
After a year of uncertainty, what are the new circumstances for the security world in 2021? We have predicted some of the upcoming security trends in the coming months. Here are our predictions for the four major security trends of 2021.
Increase in Security Budgets
As the pandemic recedes and businesses get back to normal operations, security budgets will most likely increase in 2021.
2020 was the year where everybody shopped online. However, it is expected that in 2021, in-person shopping will be in operation. Having been cooped up in their homes for much of the last year, customers will want to get back to visiting physical stores and get rid of their lockdown fatigue.
Businesses will now realize the need to invest strategically in security. Not only on the protection in physical perimeters but also online services and remote users
Businesses will need to be able to allocate spending to where your most important assets are. Nawakara’s team is on standby to provide expert advice if a security audit is needed.
Home Offices Come Under Attack
Office workers will now expect some level of remote work allowance. This will test the security of IT infrastructure to the limits.
Those patchwork solutions put in place in spring 2020? It’s time to toss those out and turn to permanent, secure long-term solutions. A chain is only as strong as its weakest link, and many businesses are operating with some fragile chains right now. Carry out an audit of your IT security.
The popularity of Concierge Security Increases
It is expected that new building developments will have some form of a concierge service. These dedicated professionals are considered one of the most versatile security staff who needs to diffuse incidents and guide everyone in the building. They will be the frontline that will handle all package deliveries and ensure the building’s safety upfront. Demand for their services is set to rise in 2021.
