According to fintech news released in February 2020, coronavirus was blamed for 238% rise in attacks on banks, 80% of firms have seen an increase in cyberattacks and 27% of attacks target banks or healthcare”.  Due to the new normal on social distancing and the shift to remote and blended working style, it is fundamental for individuals and employers to be vigilant and equip themselves with cybersecurity latest trends and protections.  Since cyber-attack has increased tremendously and most employees are expected to work online, organisation and individual need to recognise the urgency to enhance cyber resilience strategy and solutions to minimise business and security risks.
