1
  • Covid-19 Impact on Cyber Security

2
Covid-19 Has Influenced In Cyber Security Forever
  • The Covid- 19 Pandemic has caused multisector
    devastation and transformation including the
    Cyber security sector.
  • It is a unique phenomenon with a global impact
    which disrupted lifestyles permanently, forced
    corporates to shut down and shuttered people
    dreams forever.
  • The Information Technology sector is the
    epicenter of these transformations as
    organizations are rushing to adopt online
    technology and integrate new innovations into
    their systems to maintain efficiency.

3
Changing situational factors
  • Increased dependency on Virtual technologies with
    little consideration to security implications
    which increase vulnerability. Social engineering
    criminals are identifying victims, impersonating
    trusted information sources and using advanced
    social engineering methodologies to make
    unauthorized access to individual and
    organization systems.
  • Common crimes include scam documents and texts,
    photos and images to make victims fall into their
    traps. They send images with hidden malwares used
    for data mining and obtaining confidential data
    like passwords and financial information.
  • In response to changing situational factors,
    cybercriminals are diversifying their
    methodologies and they are aggressive to
    capitalize on the new opportunities presented by
    the Pandemic.

4
The Convergence of digital technology and
computing
  • The world is trying to adjust to maintain
    constant communication without breaching travel
    and social distancing restrictions. There is a
    scramble for new innovations to make
    organizations operational and improve efficiency
    by embracing the work from home concept to
    decongest offices and production areas.
  • The Virtual ecosystem is providing essential
    communication services, like updates, both local
    and international, online learning, social
    networking services and entertainment services
    like gaming.

5
Telework Softwares
  • Many organizations have adopted telework models
    for employees to be able to work and communicate
    remotely, without security considerations in
    place.
  • Employers are unable to provide recommended
    security protections since they are far away and
    using insecure IOT devices and untrusted WI-FI
    Networks.
  • With all that, there is no time to educate
    employees on protection measures like how to
    avoid possible attacks or detect them before they
    happen.

6
Cybercrimes as the new threat
  • Even before the Covid- 19 Pandemic, Cyber
    security was a multisector threat affecting
    organizations, industries, governments and to
    larger extent individuals.
  • Corporates want to increase their productivity
    and efficiency and therefore they are not
    hesitant to adopt every new innovation in the
    market.

7
Covid -19 themed Scams
  • These kind of crimes are designed to exploit the
    growing dependency on online communication
    networks and systems.
  • Google had earlier reported a rapid increase in
    Covid 19 related message spams in addition to
    increased Phishing and Hacking attacks.
  • Malicious websites with names bearing Corona and
    Covid 19 in their domains had been registered.

8
Emotional vulnerabilities
  • Cyber criminals are exploiting peoples emotional
    instability caused by the disruptions and
    frustrations of the Pandemic.
  • End users provide the weakest link to
    cyber-attacks as they always fall prey to crafty
    fraudsters with complex social engineering
    techniques. Individuals therefore cannot easily
    detect possible attacks.
  • The Pandemic has provided a context in which
    Crimes are effortlessly committed.
