THERE is “clear evidence” that cyber criminals are targeting organisations and businesses during the coronavirus crisis, foreign secretary Dominic Raab told a Downing Street media briefing this week.

He said: “We know that cyber criminals and other malicious groups are targeting individuals, businesses, and other organisations by deploying COVID-19-related scams and phishing emails.”

Many of the scams, he added, were trying to steal personal data, intellectual property, and wider information.

With more people working from home, businesses could be more vulnerable through email, browsing, cloud, WiFi, software and hardware which could be exposed to viruses, data breaches, loss of data and loss of connectivity.
