Welcome to the July 2020 Newsletter.

According to a new report from Bitdefender “Half of infosec professionals (50%) revealed that their organisations didn't have a contingency plan in place, or didn't know if they did, for a situation like COVID-19 or a similar scenario. This lack of forward planning has come at great risk, as 86% of infosec professionals admitted that attacks in the most common attack vectors were on the rise during this period.”

The survey, taken for the first instalment of Bitdefender's global 10 in 10 Study, sought the opinions of 6,700 infosec professionals of which 23% were CISOs, CSOs and CIOs across the UK, US, Australia/New Zealand, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Denmark and Sweden, and found that 81% of the respondents believe that COVID-19 will change the way their businesses operate in the long-term. This will come as no surprise to those of us still working from home in our semi-lockdown state, and the next issue of Network Computing will certainly reflect this ‘new normal’, with the majority of articles reflecting on the realities of working from home and its implications for business – with a notable emphasis on security.

Commenting on the survey findings Liviu Arsene, Global Cybersecurity Researcher at Bitdefender said "At least half of organisations admitted they were not prepared for a scenario such as this, whereas the attackers are seizing the opportunity. But within the current situation there is a great opportunity for positive change in cybersecurity." We will need to seize that opportunity with the same zeal as the cybercriminals if we are to continue to work remotely and safely for the foreseeable future.
