The COVID-19 cyberwar: How to protect your organization and business
The tendency toward ad hoc decision making during crises only accelerates the opportunity to exfiltrate data or compromise business operations. The potential impacts are more dangerous, too. A distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack, for instance, can be far more damaging in an operational environment that is already strained for capacity than one launched when additional capacity is readily available.
In this report, we identify key steps security leaders can take now to manage discrete, high-impact events that may arise in this environment and to prepare for additional unforeseen scenarios. Every cybersecurity crisis has a three-part lifecycle:
- Planning and detection
