Self-isolation, social distances, lockdown… the coronavirus has upended almost every aspect of our lives. Anxiety, stress, or sleep insomnia have spiked around the globe. Everybody feels on the edge, and hackers and cyber criminals play with these emotions to their advantage. Now, cyber threats are increasing as COVID-19 continues to cause global panic.
Organisations’ online assets are critical to business performance and during these current circumstances, cyber attackers are not losing the opportunity to exploit weaknesses, whether they are technical flaws our cloud misconfiguration, which can prove very costly and damage a company’s reputation.
In light of the current shifting dynamics that are forcing everyone to work from home (for a much longer than anticipated amount of time), we must all adapt and now gain visibility of a decentralised environment to be able to quickly detect and respond to security issues as they still continue to arise - if not more so, as bad actors are taking advantage of the Covid-19 situation.
