The Impact of Pandemic-Driven Remote Working on Employee Wellbeing, the Psychological Contract and Cyber Security Remote Working and (In)Security

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report


lready in March 2020, it was evident the rapid transition into working remotely would impact on the security of organisations, as well as on the wellbeing of employees. How exactly it would do so was impossible to predict, given the complexity of such changes, as well as their unprecedented nature. This paper, authored by Georgia Crossland and Amy Ertan, builds upon the research they completed over the last few months working together with the RISCS Fellow in Leadership and Culture, Berta Pappenheim. The team interviewed 18 cyber security leaders from a wide range of industries to understand not only the effects the transition had itself, but also to gain an insight into various consequences that came about only as we have worked remotely for an unexpectedly prolonged period. The common themes from the interviews are organised into 9 findings, and the authors also provide actionable recommendations for senior leadership colleagues.
