63% increase in cyber attacks because of guess who??

@DavidSecurity once again with your Technology Tuesday Update in less the 60 seconds and today we’re looking at a new report that examines the pandemic’s IMPACT on Cyber Security 

The report is from the Information Systems Security Association (ISSA) which a community of international cyber security professionals.

According to this report, the pandemic has presented a “once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for hackers and online scammers”.  

The pandemic has led to an increase in attempted cyber attacks, the report said, with 20% citing a significant increase in attempted attacks and 43% noting a slight increase in attempted attacks. 

As part of their research the organizations surveyed 364 cyber security and IT professionals from the global ISSA member list in April 2020, and found that respondents experienced a 63% increase in cyber attacks because of the pandemic.

On a positive note, the health crisis and work from home strategies have led to some improvement in collaboration. 

That’s your 60 second technology update.  Stay safe and have a great day!
