The year 2020 has not started with sunshine and rainbows. In fact, this year has possibly been the worst in the past 15 years or so in terms of the diverse set of challenges we've faced as a global society. The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has not only increased the incidence of life-threatening disease, it has also increased the risk of cyber threats as more of us work remotely. These threats include not only cyber criminal activity such as scams, extortion, and data theft, but also industrial and nation state espionage.
The coronavirus has us all living life a little differently now. It has changed how we travel and shop. How we communicate and spend time with others. It has also changed how organizations are conducting business. They have had to adapt to shutdowns and stay-at-home orders. With the many kinds of businesses out there, they certainly are finding different ways to adapt to continue operations. Primarily working remotely.
The World Health Organization has officially declared the recent coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak a pandemic and it has infected hundreds of thousands around the world. If your business hasn’t already been impacted by COVID-19, it is only a question of when.
