What's next for COVID-19 GLOBAL CYBERSECURITY PROTECTION

With the whole world working from home, cyber hackers are looking to exploit vulnerabilities in an attempt to steal valuable information. The bad guys have been working from home before this time and they will be more engage this time and opportunity to steal valuable information from anyone that give them chance. As the coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19) escaped the confines of China earlier this year and it became increasingly clear large numbers of workers would has been hunker down at home, all eyes turned to an obvious potential weak spot – VPNs, which would surely sputter under the stress. But as the virus spread it has exposed additional security problems, ranging from the inability to do forensic tests and general upkeep on systems to granter higher level user privileges to staff to access systems remotely. Organizations which previously did not have a distributed workforce quickly learned their tools on hand were not designed or intended to work safely offsite, via a VPN or over the internet.preventing security and IT teams from conducting even routine, but important, tasks. “Since many of the security controls and tools used by non-distributed companies depend on being on the local network, they cannot do [many] things remotely, “Many companies have found it more difficult to update, monitor logs etc unless the device is on the local network, so when employees take them home, they are in the dark.” Beware that criminals use email, websites, phone calls, text messages, and even fax messages for their scams. Phishing: malicious emails appearing to be from your bank or company You need to be aware of suspicious email messages attempting to take advantage of the COVID-19 emergency. This fraudulent action is called phishing.

These “Phishing” emails appear to be from YOUR BANK OR COMPANY, and will ask you to: • give sensitive information, such as usernames or passwords • click a malicious link • open a malicious attachment.

Using this method, criminals can install malware or steal sensitive information. How to prevent phishing:

  1. Verify the sender by checking their email address.

Make sure the sender has an email address such as ‘person@yourbank’ If there is anything other than after the ‘@’ symbol, this sender is not from your bank or company.

  1. Check the link before you click.

Make sure the link starts with ‘https’. Better still, navigate to the your company or Bank website directly, by typing ‘https://www.’ into your browser.

  1. Be careful when providing personal information.

Always consider why someone wants your information and if it is appropriate. There is no reason someone would need your username & password to access public information.

  1. Do not rush or feel under pressure.

Cybercriminals use emergencies such as COVID -19 to get people to make decisions quickly. Always take time to think about a request for your personal information, and whether the request is appropriate.

  1. If you gave sensitive information, don’t panic.

If you believe you have given data such as your username or passwords to cybercriminals, immediately change your credentials on each site where you have used them.

  1. If you see a scam, report it.
    Don’t just click on any link you see online; don’t connect with unknown Wi-Fi, download all your mobile Apps from PlayStore or AppStore.

If you see a scam, tell us about it.
