CyberSecurity requirement during COVID and Post COVID Era | ECS Biztech Ltd.

Most companies have minimal or no plans for business continuity and incident response in place while dealing with the COVID-19. Cybercriminals can take advantage of recently heightened digital footprints and increased web traffic to find vulnerabilities. Security flaws in Zoom, a videoconferencing tool, have shocked the corporate world some time back. Fraudsters can either siphon off money or steal valuable data through phishing emails and malware.

Talking about the post-COVID-19 era, we do hope that the COVID-19 pandemic will last up to some months. But, it will make the IT landscape and cybersecurity domain more complicated than ever. Once we will get rid of this pandemic, many companies will move to new operating systems or reset their existing security system to ensure data safety. Cybersecurity service providers need to give responses to new cyber threats and remove vulnerabilities. IT security leaders will come up with a new BCP (Business Continuity Plans) by including a pandemic-like situation and keep on performing drills regularly.

The post-COVID-19 era will be of embracing new approaches and implementing new technologies while keeping cybersecurity in focus. Companies will also attempt to increase automation to reduce dependence on manual processes.
