Working remotely has become more and more common in today’s business culture. This usually meant that an employee planned with their team the days they would need to work remotely, typically one to two times a week. However, the coronavirus outbreak and accompanying lockdown in US has forced many employees into unfamiliar territory—not just working remotely, but also managing other complications such as school and childcare closings.
If you think cybercriminals will be sensitive to global events and refrain from attacking remote workers, sadly, it is the complete opposite. This is the perfect opportunity for them to take advantage of weakened security and prey on victims through cyber-attacks, email attacks and social engineering. The FBI has seen a surge in reported cybercrime since the pandemic.
