Coronavirus: Back-to-Basics Threats, Back-to-Basics Security
The COVID-19 pandemic has inspired hackers to break out some older, more basic attack methods to exploit work-from-home security vulnerabilities. In today’s guest post, Carbon Black’s Darius Eslami offers tips to protect your organization against suddenly-popular old-school exploits.
Part one of a series.
Security teams have spent decades building up their defenses against cyberattacks. Unfortunately, having employees social distancing and working from home is circumventing these protections. Home networks and personal devices are being used to access company networks and information and most companies don’t have the security infrastructure in place to handle remote work at scale.
Attackers see this as an opportunity to exploit and are reverting to simple phishing and malware techniques to beach corporate networks. For cybersecurity professionals, this means we need to go back to the basics.
Phishing attacks have increased with the rise of social distancing. In fact, over 1,700 Zoom-themed domains have been registered since January. We’re even seeing things like “CoronaVirus Ransomware” pop-ups.
There are many reasons attackers see COVID-19 as an opportunity to use basic techniques to get corporate credentials. Here are just a few:
The increased risk of attack means cybersecurity professionals need to take some basic actions to keep endpoints protected.
Social distancing will hopefully go away at some point, but remote work is here to stay. As more companies learn how to operate with remote workers, more jobs will transform into telecommuting assignments. This means that the need to secure remote workers will not go away. Given this, take the opportunity to make security decisions that will strengthen your security posture for years to come.
