How COVID-19 Impacts The Business Cyber Security

How COVID-19 Impacts The Business Cyber Security

The COVID-19 is the worst phase that people have ever gone through in this century. It is the first time in the history that people have been indoor without travelling, any entertainment and sports. This is the time when the public was even struggling to get toilet papers. The world seemed to be unreal for the people and natural for the environment.

The globe has not only witnessed millions of lives lost but it has hurt the people economically too. Government and private sectors were badly impacted. Between all these, online services helped people to get all the essentials at home and lit a hope for their living.

Due to the high demand of e-commerce and online businesses, IT professionals were fully loaded with work. Whether it is "work from home" or "virtual meetings", the IT teams were always active.

Cyber Security Priorities amidst COVID-19:

With so many businesses going online in quick time (without proper testing), the evil hackers were ready for their turn. As expected, according to Google, a high increase in malicious activities was reported and the cyber attacks were noted at a high peak in April. From then, the cyber security and network professionals are working hard to safeguard confidential data of the businesses.

It is fair to say that the COVID-19 has helped people to understand the importance of cyber security and its priorities.

External cyber attacks opportunity:

During the novel virus, governments have imposed lockdowns in every state. Hence, offices were closed or employees were advised to work from home. Thus, it became very challenging for cyber security professionals to assure full safety to organizations.

People were using private networks at home with their own hardwares for office work. Hence, organizations redesigned their whole security system to protect data from the phishers and to track their employees activities.

Advanced access system:

As people are working from home on their personal systems, there are many times when they require a client's credentials to initiate a task (card information, bank details, social security number etc.). Generally, organizations keep this sensitive information encrypted and use them with strict security measures. Hence, it became a concern for companies to share these secret information with their executives at home. It's been very difficult for the cyber security professionals to provide access to different important documents. Cyber criminals are waiting for your one loose action to destroy your year's safety controls.

It is very essential to audit your company and website safety in different intervals of the year. With so much happening in the IT industry, we cannot rely on old tools.
