While the world and companies everywhere focus on the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) and are forming pandemic plans to keep business going and employees safe, cybercriminals are also following the crisis closely, looking to spread infections in different ways. In fact, according to the LA Times, a health agency in the U.S. has already suffered a cyberattack amid the COVID-19 outbreak. Why? In short, cybercriminals love a crisis. Companies are more vulnerable than usual and their focus shifts to other priorities other than cybersecurity practices.
Just like a computer virus, the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is rapidly spreading. This global Pandemic, as declared by the WHO, is impacting businesses everywhere. But, just because your office is dark, doesn’t mean your company is. You’re still focused on keeping your business going and your employees healthy.
