Organisations are relying on technology more than ever during the Pandemic to receive news and share practice. Cyber criminals, however, are increasingly targeting businesses whilst at their most vulnerable.

A new national reporting service for suspicious emails by NCSC has removed over 2,000 online scams related to Coronavirus in March. Many cyber criminals play on the fear of the vulnerable and purport to share tips on virus prevention via malicious links.

QCS has partnered up with the Insurance Specialists Howden to provide you with an insight into the evolving cyber-attacks during the Pandemic. The article covers:

1. Why are cyber criminals aiming at care providers rather than the big banks and large corporates?

2. Difficulties in maintaining cyber security awareness amongst staff.

3. Importance of a strong culture of compliance.

4. Cyberattacks: How Care Providers can protect themselves. - Infographic (included below)
