As the COVID-19 pandemic continues businesses and organisations are in various stages of crisis response or recovery across the globe. Regardless of which stage you are at right now, there is a growing body of knowledge and lessons learned that can help your crisis response.
The COVID-19 pandemic is a crisis different from anything a business leader will have faced in over a century. Effective leadership in a prolonged crisis is absolutely necessary. Our experts use their experience, several previously from the FBI's Critical Incident Response Group, to offer constructive advice for leadership in this time of crisis.
Cybercriminal and Nation-state activity related to COVID-19 has ranged from phishing campaigns to steal credentials and commit financial fraud, to more sophisticated attacks focused on stealing financial or other sensitive data and conducting distributed denial of service and ransomware attacks.
COVID-19 has turned working from home into the norm for organisations around the world. But as organisations learn how to manage their whole workforce working remotely, attackers are also adapting to this new reality and exploiting it to target the confidentiality, integrity and availability of data and systems.
Companies across the world are grappling with the consequences of the restrictions imposed to manage COVID-19, with decision-making around major events and sports fixtures particularly time-sensitive and contentious given the considerable impact on organisers and participants.
