Cybercriminals love a crisis. Amid the COVID-19 outbreaks, companies are even more vulnerable than usual to cyberattacks. As more business owners move operations completely online and larger organizations are directing employees to work from home, remote work means a rise in the number of devices employees are using and an increase in the use of online conferencing tools, letting hackers cast a much wider net in which to snare potential targets.
In fact, on March 13, the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), the Department of Homeland Security’s cyber agency, issued an alert specifically addressing cyber vulnerabilities. The alert focuses on the risks associated with virtual private networks (VPNs), which many small businesses and most large organizations use to allow employees remote access to applications and workspaces. CISA has urged organizations to adopt a heightened state of cybersecurity to prevent against these attacks.
