Why is Cybersecurity so Important Now for Everyone?

By Click&Clean - Tuesday, March 31, 2020. Dear all! In this difficult time for everyone, when the global spread of the new coronavirus has led to the fact that most of the world is on lockdown and requires people to work from home, security and privacy protection on the Internet have become even more relevant.

Working from home poses more cybersecurity issues that may be different from on-premise work. For example, the European Parliament recently discussed cybersecurity and data leakage protection solutions during the COVID-19 outbreak, as it temporarily allowed MEPs to vote remotely from their homes via the public Internet, which could be unsafe and more prone to hacking if used without proper protection.

What Security Threats Can Affect Me?

Cybercriminals don't sleep. They know that people are now more dependent than usual on Internet communication, emails, online browsing, etc. and use this situation to strengthen their malicious activities in many different ways.

Scammers and hackers create fake domains and sites, then spreading malicious links on social media, sending phishing emails, etc. to trick people into visiting their sites. For example, they may prey on your fear and urgent need for news related to COVID-19.

If you visit a malicious site, cybercriminals can access your browsing data and your credentials by installing hidden malware and employing other shady techniques to exploit browser security holes and PC vulnerabilities. So, one of the first defenses against fraudsters may sound too simplistic - "Less Browsing Data, Less Problems!"
