“Scammers are leveraging the
COVID-19 pandemic to steal your money, your personal information, or both.”
Service Announcement, March 2020.
As we are all much too aware, the Covid-19 pandemic has caused massive – and very rapid – economic, political, and societal upheaval. While it has forced lay-offs and shut down entire industries from main street to the mall and beyond, one area that hasn’t seen a slowdown is cybercrime.
The holidays are a great time for bringing the
family together and for taking some time off work. But truth be told, the world
does not stop during the holidays, and people still need to work on important
and urgent matters. In fact, 53% of working people work remotely during the
holidays, with 30% of which do so several times a day, according to this poll.
