Cybercriminals Are Making The Most of This Crisis
Unfortunately, due to these unusual circumstances, cybercriminals are taking advantage of companies. So it is best to be on alert and use caution. Employees unfamiliar with remote work are the target demo. Since the internet is abuzz with coronavirus, cybercriminals have used it as an opportunity to pounce on novices. Hackers selling other hackers COVID-19 scam “kits” that are complete with fraudulent email templates used to target workers at home.
“Hackers are trying to exploit this moment in a time when everyone’s forced online,” said Dave Baggett, CEO of cybersecurity firm INKY, which is using artificial intelligence to track a “massive explosion” in corporate email attacks. These attacks actually began in late February, but have skyrocketed this week. MSEDP is aware of these issues and can help you safely navigate these issues.
Be On The Lookout For Phishing Scams
Phishing scams are the most prevalent online attack during this epidemic. A phishing scam is when emails appear to be sent from an employer or another official organization, but is really an attempt to get recipients to click on a link and input credentials and personal information. Hackers then use that information to access the corporate network, an individual’s personal accounts, or download ransomware on a device requiring users or businesses to pay sometimes staggering amounts of ransom in order to regain access.
So it is important to be safe during this time. MSEDP is there for you any way you need it. Our cybersecurity services are of the highest quality and will ensure that you are working remotely in the safest manner possible.
