Resource Guide for Cybersecurity During the COVID-19 Pandemic

According to the results of the CSO Pandemic Impact Survey, 61% of the security and IT leader respondents are concerned about an increase in cyber-attacks targeting their employees who are working from home. They’re right to be concerned; according to the survey, 26% have seen an increase in the volume, severity, and/or scope of cyber-attacks since mid-March.

The Center for Internet Security's (CIS) Security Operations Center (SOC) has seen a marked increase in remote desktop protocol (RDP) exploitation, likely due to malicious attempts to exploit teleworking capabilities. There has also been a significant shift to using COVID-19 styled phishing and malspam campaigns.

This resource guide from CIS provides information about common cyber-attacks that are currently being reported. It also provides resources for improving cyber hygiene to enhance cyber defenses, both for organizations and their employees.

It's crucial to provide continuous support for remote employees. Don’t wait to provide guidance or reminders for cybersecurity. This guide contains actionable recommendations for your employees.
