The global COVID-19 pandemic fundamentally transformed how we live, work and interact with one another. As organisations across the world re-architect how their workforces securely connect and communicate in the new work reality, it's never been more important to stay abreast of the fast-moving cyber threat landscape.
The Coronavirus outbreak continues to hold the entire world hostage, and healthcare facilities are at the forefront of this struggle. The fact that hospitals and pharmaceutical labs are overwhelmed with work and research makes them more vulnerable to malware attacks than ever before. Saving lives is their top priority and everything else comes next. Malicious actors don’t seem to care about the importance of these commendable efforts, though. They are waging a cyberwar against medical organisations as if the COVID-19 emergency weren’t underway.
If you ask most people who work in our industry to describe the difference between HTTP and HTTPS, they might say the latter is the secure version. They may even go further and explain that HTTPS uses an SSL certificate to secure the connection between the user’s web-browser and the web-server hosting the web-page. But surprisingly, many do not know the details of how an SSL certificate works; the reliance on third-party trust, and why we will soon be facing a wave of problems with root certificates expiring.
There are a few businesses which have been proven to thrive in the conditions we find ourselves in today; and telecommunications companies are one of them. Whether it be Zoom, Webex, GoToMeeting or any other provider of teleconferencing software, the demand for such solutions and services have soared, as large swathes of the population now adjust to new working from home requirements.
As COVID-19 spreads and major cities go into lock down, more and more businesses are sending employees home to work remotely. The need for social distancing has become very real very quickly and has seen companies scrambling to implement remote access solutions as quickly as possible. 
We live in unprecedented times. Despite there being a number of occasions in recorded history where ah a medical emergency has befallen humanity; there has never been so many of us and never has there been such disruption to our economically interconnected world.
