COVID-19: Flattening the cybersecurity curve

0

As CIO’s and CTO’s fight the impact of the pandemic, they’ve also had to stiffen their lines of defence against cyber criminals who seek to take advantage of the situation. Organisations have quickly pivoted to allow working from home in response to lockdown orders, leading computer networks to experience additional and new strains that are leaving them susceptible to infiltration by cyber criminals.

This rapid transition to remote working has taxed the security and IT infrastructures of many companies, which has led to an exploitable opportunity. In fact, our research has shown a 667% increase in spear-phishing email attacks related to COVID-19 since the end of February. The gap between cybersecurity risk and defensive effectiveness is as wide as it’s ever been for many companies. Suddenly, cybersecurity has been pushed to the top of any business’ agenda – from the vulnerabilities in Zoom, to the explosion in use of personal devices on corporate networks.
