With remote working becoming more prevalent during the pandemic, this has caused many smaller sized businesses to be exposed to cyber attacks usually seen within larger firms.

This is according to Dave Waterson, CEO at security protection software company, SentryBay, who predicts a rise of as much as 40% in attacks in the year to come – primarily targeting vulnerable endpoint devices.

The pandemic has been widely exploited by cyber actors and advanced persistent threat groups using Covid-19 themes, which has been putting individuals, small and medium businesses and large organisations at risk of scams and phishing attacks.

However, the SentryBay team believes that it’s the geographically widespread location of employees that is worsening the risk, which is set to increase rather than decrease as the second wave of the virus forces people back to working in their homes.

The security protection software company forecasts that next year, the greatest danger to organisations will come from key logging and screen-grabbing malware, primarily because they are the attack vector through which sensitive data is most often, and most easily, stolen.

Dave Waterson SentryBay CEO, commented, “Working from Home (WFH) has meant that sensitive company data has a broader physical footprint, and organisations have less control over how it is being accessed if their employees are outside the safety of the corporate perimeter.

“Where previously smaller enterprises, which are often less well protected, were able to fly under the radar and avoid cyber-attacks, this is no longer the case, and they are increasingly being hit with insidious, damaging breaches that they are ill-equipped to deal with in the current climate.”
