Businesses should reconsider their approach to security to ensure business resilience & mitigate increased cyber risk

The continued increase in threats from Q3 (+240%) to Q4 (+114%) is a harsh reminder of how quickly and effectively cybercriminals have been able to take advantage of Covid-19. As we emerge from the pandemic and look to navigate the new normal, it’s important that businesses reconsider their approach to security to ensure business resilience and their ability to mitigate increased cyber risk.

Our research also saw increases in ransomware, malware and powershell attacks, highlighting the importance of IT teams being aware of the wide variety of threats that could be targeting their organisation.

It is now critical that organisations go beyond the basics to create and maintain a secure environment. By effectively using technology to prioritise threats, predict the types of campaigns that will be launched against them and pre-emptively improve their defensive countermeasures, organisations can rest assured that they’re doing everything they can to protect their business.
