Prepare now for the second wave of coronavirus hacking

  • Hackers rarely let a good crisis go unexploited, and the coronavirus has proven to be no exception.
  • Multiple law enforcement alerts have detailed the dramatic spike in the use of COVID-19 themes by cyber criminals as a way to lure unsuspecting users into downloading malware.
  • Propelled by the need to “socially distance” as way to minimize the spread of the COVID-19 virus, the American economy is in the midst of a hurried shift to telecommuting.
  • That unplanned surge is straining corporate network systems, offering nation-state hackers an undreamed-of opportunity to unleash a second wave of more comprehensive attacks on American businesses.
