Video: Covid-19 could destabilise the online worlds - 726 million cyber-attacks in 2020

New research from cyber security experts Kaspersky warns that the Covid-19 outbreak could lead to the destabilising of the online world.

The results of the study showed:

- Huge gaping holes in security measures, with half of employees working from home on personal devices and not having or knowing what their security policy is to ward against potential attacks.

- Three-quarters of workers (75%) say that they have had zero IT security awareness training since they switched from office working to remote working overnight.

- As a result of these lax measures, it’s perhaps unsurprising that one in four workers (27%) say they received malicious emails related to Covid-19 while working from home.
