Building Cyber and Organisational Resilience through difficult times

As we seek to manage, survive and innovate our way through the COVID-19 challenge, we need to accept that our adversaries and 100% committed to exploiting the confusion and identifying all opportunities for financial gain.  

Chaos drives change and presents opportunities, how do we accelerate change today in order to enhance our cyber resilience tomorrow?

The World Health Organisation has reported a fivefold increase in cyber attacks since COVID-19 began. Phishing, malware and ransomware attacks have been the most common as individuals are taken advantage of through the process of social engineering. People are constantly eager to receive the latest news and information on the pandemic and this creates cyber negligence. 

The COVID pandemic and the transition to "work-from-home" has increased the challenges for companies to work securely in the digital environment. Because remote devices are not protected by company networks, the integrity and availability of data becomes more crucial when working remotely becomes normalised.
