Securing the new business ecosystem
Compulsory high-speed digital transformation is changing cybersecurity for the better

Companies reacted faster to COVID 19 than anyone could have imagined.

Within weeks of the scale of the crisis being realised, entire workforces were operating from home. Collaboration tools that would've taken years to introduce and clear became normal. Global banks even transplanted entire trading floors to domestic environments, with all the supervisory headaches that brought.

For the first six weeks or so, most firms were simply firefighting. Just maintaining business continuity, getting hardware and software to where it was needed, and establishing the connectivity required was a mission.

And just as they and their businesses were at the point of maximum disruption, cybersecurity teams were also dealing with a huge spike in the volume and severity of threats. Phishing rose sharply; DDoS and ransomware attacks too. Stressed employees using unfamiliar or insecure systems are easier to hack and overall business disruption may render compensating controls less effective.
