The Coronavirus (COVID-19) meets Cyber Security
Real-word viruses and their online counterparts
COVID-19 or the Coronavirus is changing life as we know it. From simple handshakes to finding toilet paper, life has changed tremendously over the past several weeks. Not only is this virus a physical threat, but it is also a threat to cyber-security. Different scams, phishing emails, fake news, and other online threats are spreading just as fast as the virus itself. Just as doctors say frequent hand-washing and respiratory hygiene is the best defense against the coronavirus, cybersecurity professionals stress that computer users need to be wary of what people clicking and downloading online.
