Apparo's CIO Insights Presents: SecurIT: Protecting Against Pandemic Vulnerabilities

Since the onset of COVID-19, the attacks on data, hacking and ransomware that enterprises are experiencing have drastically grown and changed in their severity.

  • With an increased remote workforce, cybercriminals have found new opportunities to launch unprecedented campaigns. Since the beginning of COVID-19, businesses have experienced:
  • 47% increase in the severity of ransomware attacks that have included newer, particularly dangerous strains.
  • 67% increase in email attacks
  • 41% increase in ransomware*

“The pandemic has shone a light on the resilience of our businesses as companies struggle to pull together a country-level approach that links together cybersecurity, technology resilience, people, supply chain and property issues – while also focusing on what really matters to the business — critical assets and services.” ** Working with increased vigilance, and understanding how to mitigate risks in this climate of uncertainty is of the utmost importance. 


Our November Insights panel of CISOs will explore the cybersecurity evolution during this pandemic, focusing on their resiliency in their companies:

  • Fostering a culture of cyber resilience: creating a collective urgency around cyber needs, privacy, and security
  • Identifying and securing critical capabilities and services
  • Defining meaningful cyber risk metrics, specifically supply chain and digital channels
  • Understanding how cooperation in cyber risk avoidance has changed amongst government, competitors, and consumers

Join us on November 18th as we discuss these vulnerabilities and hear from CISOs on their strategies for mitigating risks.
