The challenges of cybersecurity
in the time of Covid-19
Why you need continuous security optimisation
Cyberthreats are on the rise, thanks to the use of personal devices and home Wi-Fi, fewer IT resources, employees having to DIY their security settings, and a rise in social engineering by cyber criminals preying on vulnerable employees.
About The Report
More than simply acquiring and installing security solutions, enterprise security governance is a complete strategy to develop, deploy, test, and continuously improve an organisation’s enterprise risk management and security policies.
This should be a shared responsibility between IT, operations, legal, finance, and other teams committed to protecting the organisation’s assets.
The proliferation of endpoints, applications, and networks that an enterprise must manage under Covid-19 has strained IT teams. With employees working and collaborating remotely, an organisation’s security posture is made more vulnerable. Further, cyber criminals have increased the size and sophistication of their attacks to exploit these vulnerabilities.
Cyber criminals are aware of the growing attack surface and have increased the sophistication of their attacks.

Covid-19 and the ensuing pandemic has presented an early insurmountable challenge for the cyber security industry. Indeed, solutions providers have heeded the call to accelerate solutions for enterprise customers unprepared for the new realities of work. Even without the threat of illness, risk has increased.
A sudden boom in employees working remotely, students studying from home, and consumers shopping online or via mobile apps (rather than in stores), has created the perfect environment for cyber criminals to increase the scale and frequency of their attacks. It’s no surprise that the motivation for a data breach is financial. According to the 2020 Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report, 86% of the 3,950 breaches were financially motivated.
