Trend Micro presents A Time to React: Trend Micro Experts’ Reaction Series, a video series in which Trend Micro experts discuss evolutions in the threat landscape and how these developments impact our daily operations.
As we all know, the COVID-19 pandemic continues to cause enormous damage across the world. Unfortunately, an epidemic of cybercrime is closely following. This global crisis has led to a sharp increase in the number of cyber attacks, with criminals taking advantage of new vulnerabilities. Due to a noticeable shift in activities, cyber criminals are now trying to exploit organizations and external employees.
Back in 2015, Trend Micro already discussed the most pressing cybersecurity issues and how these could impact tomorrow’s threat landscape. At the time, our researchers addressed the evolution of ransomware – particularly how enormously complex and sophisticated it has become over time. Now that our world is once again changing because of the pandemic, we ask our researchers if and how their views on cyber threats have changed and how we can better protect ourselves in this new reality.
In the first video of this series, David Sancho, Senior Threat Researcher at Trend Micro, discusses ransomware in the new normal. Sancho explains how threat actors and their attack tactics evolved during the pandemic and how ransomware can disrupt operations.
