COVID-19 Brought Cyberattacks 

It’s no surprise that cybersecurity threats are amongst the top threats for businesses. 

According to the Future of Secure Remote Work Report by Cisco, 61% of respondents globally stated that their organizations experienced a jump of 25% or more in cyber threats or alerts since the start of COVID-19. This was also experienced by 55% of small businesses, 70% of medium organizations, and 60% of large enterprises.
