Pandemic and Cybercrime

The "bad guys" aren't sheltering in place

Our June issue of SIMformation looks at how cybercriminals are taking advantage of the Coronavirus pandemic to ramp up their efforts.  From blatant attempts to sucker you in with spam e-mails like "Get your Covid-19 funds now" to prey on insecure company connections used by the new "work from home" employees, cybercrime is thriving alongside the virus.  We have details.  We also discuss the surge in interest for Windows Virtual Desktop as companies try to manage these new work from home employees.  Microsoft has also beefed up their Edge browser to be more supportive of business functionality.  Google has also added new features to Android to also increase productivity for remote workers.  Finally, we cover Incognito Mode for your browsers and what that really means, and how you might be inadvertently leaving sensitive company data on shared home computers that family members can stumble upon.
