Cybercrimes have spiked during the COVID pandemic. In April 2020, the FBI reported an almost 300% increase in cybercrime cases. We are also seeing a huge increase of COVID-19 related phishing and business email compromise (BEC) attempts. Unfortunately, small businesses are the most vulnerable cybercrime targets. Unlike large enterprises, small businesses may not have adequate resources to protect themselves. In this webinar, cybersecurity experts Jon Clay, Mitchel Chang and Kristin Judge will help you gain some awareness and will provide high-level recommendations on cybercrime defense. The key areas discussed will include: A threat landscape update with an emphasis on what has changed since the COVID pandemic Threat protection for small businesses focusing on phishing, smishing, business email compromise (BEC) and general cybersecurity hygiene for working and schooling from home A cybercrime and fraud/scam update since the COVID pandemic BROUGHT TO YOU BY Trend Micro For nearly 30 years, Trend Micro’s unwavering vision has been to make the world safe for exchanging digital information.
