Current & potential developments

Increased risks associated with lack of cybersecurity protocol and oversight emerge when employees are working remotely. The term “social distancing” inevitably leads to the risks associated with “social engineering.” Cyber threat actors are preying on the concerns associated with COVID-19 and the potential lack of secure office environments as a launching pad for cyber-attacks.

Impact

Cyber attacks can have devastating consequences and organizations must take critical steps now to prevent these attacks from occurring. Criminals take advantage of coronavirus anxiety to defraud victims online using social engineering tactics. Attackers take advantage of weaker security controls for remote users to initiate web-based attacks.
