There is no doubt that cyber-criminals are already jumping on opportunities to exploit employees working remotely during coronavirus, and the number of cyber-attacks will increase, according to Europol.

Indeed, cyber-criminals are already profiting from the pandemic, with phishing campaigns designed to steal employees’ credentials and compromise business systems, the agency has warned.

Shockingly, hackers are also looking to take advantage of weaknesses in healthcare systems despite the very real-life risk this poses. Interpol’s Cybercrime Threat Response has detected a “significant increase” in the number of attempted ransomware attacks against key organisations around the world. And this is only the start.
