Fighting Cybercrime in a Pandemic Threat Landscape

The cyber risk landscape is shifting dramatically during this pandemic. A huge wave of employees are migrating from protected work environments to unprotected home environments, providing a prime attack surface for threat actors. Cyber criminals are looking eagerly for ways to exploit weaknesses in these new teleworkers and gain access to otherwise secure company networks. In addition, the same industry sectors that are disproportionately hit by COVID-19 have become softer targets for cyber criminals, including the Healthcare, Financial, Government, and Telecommunications sectors. Government and private organizations striving to lead us through the COVID-19 crisis have already been targeted by cyber criminals.

These changing dynamics are stretching cybersecurity resources when time-to-action is a critical factor in preempting cyber criminals who will continue to focus on vulnerable targets at increasing speed. Current methods of cyber risk management, incident response, and risk modeling have failed to keep up with the growing sophistication and speed with which cyber adversaries are armed. Traditional threat intelligence models that focus on Indicators of Compromise are problematic, producing a high rate of false positives and delays in execution due to security products that deliver frequent, low-impact alerts.
