With the increased need for people to work remotely, we are seeing rising levels of targeted cyber attacks. Hackers are indiscriminately aiming for organisations of all sizes. Those with 5-500 employees are especially at risk. The resulting impact could be crippling for most businesses. Loss of financial assets and data, large penalties, business downtime, and damaged relationships with customers are becoming the norm. As the lock-down in the UK continues and organisations follow governmental guidelines, advising their employees to work from home, the situation is getting worse with hackers constantly developing new ways to breach corporate data and IT systems.• Covid-19 is now a global pandemic. Governments are instructing organisations to protect staff by letting them work from home. 71% of organisations worldwide are likely to struggle due to the lack of tried and tested Remote-Work and Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) policies.*• Staff working from home, often using personal devices such as home Wi-Fi and mobile phones, are suddenly exposing their clients, users and companies to new Information and Business Continuity Risks that they might be unaware of.

As the Irish government starts to ease restrictions, the focus has turned to the safe return of people to the workplace. However, with cybersecurity attacks still on the rise organisations are not taking the necessary steps to protect themselves from hackers.COVID-19 has been the biggest disruptor to business in the recent past. Cyberattacks have grown 500% and this trend is predicted to grow according to the FBI. The real damage of these attacks is yet unknown, as it takes an average organisation up to 6 months to discover a breach. Therefore, GCHQ’s warning, that over 50% of companies have already been attacked since February with varying levels of success, is most alarming. The transition from lockdown into the “new normal” will require careful planning, especially on the cybersecurity front. The continuity of your business could be at stake!During the webinar, Sunil Bothra, our global subject-matter expert, shared with you:The 5 biggest cybersecurity traps to the return from the COVID-19 lockdownUseful tips on how to protect your organisation in these uncertain times.To find out more about cyber security and the potential risks to your organisation click here to watch the webinar on-demand.
