A report from Verizon says that WFH policies are harming information
security.  However, there doesn't seem to be any evidence of anything
harmful happening, and I strongly suspect that the report is yet another
opinion survey.

If there *is* any increase in security threats, I'm sure the real culprits
are:

 - a huge surge in spam, fraud, and phishing emails.  This has been going on
   ever since the pandemic started, and it's gotten worse in the past couple
   of months.

 - a lack of "work from home" policies on the part of businesses, and no
   real thought about the risks involved in simply sending people home and
   telling them to carry on as usual (in a highly unusual situation).

 - no provision or budget for the computers, devices, and security software
   that might be needed to provide extra protection in WFH situations.
