Cyber attacks and scams are keeping pace with the growth in remote working. Cybercriminals keep coming up with new ploys that seem familiar to home users. The use of emails referencing billing, shipping, and current events - all appearing to be coming from known domains, businesses, and people, but actually coming from fake sources - have always had success for hackers. However, new variations of these old scams are being tweaked to focus on the current work from home situation.
- IT needs to do whatever it can technologically to keep threats away from users.
- The staff needs to receive cybersecurity training and then ongoing reminders. Both efforts need to be effective regardless of where workers are located.
