The biggest change is that all employees needed to work from home. Due to the enormous increase of remote working many IT organisations profited from this change. For example, Microsoft Teams doubled in users within a month.


Due to working online the importance of security increased even more. When working online, a lot of confidential data and other information is being exchanged via a direct or shared connection. Both have to be secured in the best possible way, in order to protect business-critical and personal data. This is where the IT professionals come in. Because of the urgency to improve security, companies are searching for Security and Data Specialists to secure their data.
