Cybersecurity expert warns about the dangers of working from home

- Nuclear war would require billions of dollars and years of development. But someone in a basement can pull off a devastating cyberattack that takes down the critical infrastructure for practically nothing.
- “The cyberwar has replaced the Cold War. And it’s really a cyber-pandemic,” says Adam Levin, the founder of Cyberscout and an expert on cybersecurity.
- The threat is even greater if those employees are using their personal computers rather than company-issued laptops with loaded anti-virus and anti-malware software.
- It isn’t just other nations attacking the targets in the United States. The U.S. attacked Russia’s power grid less than 2 years ago. So this really is a cyber-world war. Levin says, be vigilant. Be careful what you do online. And never use the same password for multiple accounts. It not only protects you personally but could keep your company and others safe.
