Threats + Vulnerabilities Will Continue to Grow in Post-COVID Workplace

Malicious hacking is on the rise, whether it’s ransomware attacks on target municipalities, data breaches that divulge details on millions of people, or supply chains hacks that kneecap global trade.

As much as 25% to 30% of the workforce will work remotely multiple days a week by the end of 2021, according to projections by Global Workplace Analytics. Remote working is new to many of these workers, and hackers will prey on those concerned about health and financial matters. March alone saw a 667% increase phishing emails, and Gmail is blocking 18 million COVID email scams every day.
