CYBER SECURITY & COVID-19: Stay vigilant – cyber security is not immune to COVID-19

We are in chaos and a lockdown; more people than ever are working from home. Organisations are forced to expose their internal applications, code, untested applications and internal network to internet for the daily activities.

Cyber Criminals are using this as an opportunity to gain access and loot your money & sensitive data. We advise all the organisations to take necessary steps to protect the technological assets.

Simuna’s latest analysis shows that the frequency of cyber incidents had increased from 10 attempts per second to 10 attempts per micro second.

Our findings shows that DOS(Denial of Service) attacks is the most seen, followed by Remote user Credential Theft, Identity Theft, Phishing, Malware Attacks, Data Theft, Ransomware attacks, even like simple phone calls as they know you are operating on a limited capacity.

Cybersecurity for Organizations:

While remote working arrangements may be effective to slow the community spread of COVID-19 from person to person, they present cybersecurity challenges that can be different than on-premise work. At Simuna we recommendsexamining the security of information technology systems by taking the following steps to help keep you systems secure:

    • Secure systems that enable remote access.

                o Ensure Virtual Private Network and other remote access systems are fully tested on VAPT & patched.

                o Enhance system monitoring to receive early detection and alerts on abnormal activity.

                o Implement multi-factor authentication.

                o Ensure all machines have properly configured firewalls, as well as anti-malware and intrusion prevention software installed.

    • Execute Security Testing on remote access solutions capacity or increase capacity.

    • Ensure continuity of operations plans or business continuity plans are up to date.

    • Increase awareness of information technology support mechanisms for employees who work remotely.

    • Ensure awareness of cyber security policies and best cyber security practices for all your employees.

    • Update incident response plans to consider workforce changes in a distributed environment.

Cybersecurity for Individuals:

Simuna advise individuals to remain vigilant and take the following precautions.

    • Avoid clicking on links in unsolicited emails

    • Be very wary of email attachments. Use Caution with Email Attachments to avoid Social Engineering and Phishing Scams.

    • Use trusted sources—such as legitimate, government websites—for up-to-date, fact-based information about COVID-19.

    • Do not reveal personal or financial information in email, and do not respond to email solicitations for this information.

    • Much as it pains us, verify a charity’s authenticity before making donations.
