Cybercriminals are not ones to let any major event go unexploited and the COVID-19 pandemic is no exception. Even at the best of times, these talented attackers use human behaviors against you in the never-ending quest to separate you from your money.
Using social engineering techniques, the bad actors have continued to attack organizations across industries at a furious pace. While you may believe you are too small to be a target, if you have an email address or if your organization shows up on a Google search, they will use automated tools to attack you.
