Cyberattacks Have Surged During Pandemic
During this pandemic, attackers aren’t slowing down. In fact, they’re actually ramping up their activity and they’ve been ramping up their activity for two very obvious reasons. One, more and more organizations are virtual and working remotely, which means they’re relying on systems that are a bit new. Everything’s being communicated digitally, relying much more on the cloud. So that’s one; you just got a lot more digital remote activity.
