31% increase in cyber-crime during the pandemic
The pandemic has presented a huge challenge for organisations that seek to protect themselves and their assets from cyber-attacks.
It’s been reported that there has been a 31% increase in cyber-crime during the pandemic, costing UK businesses over £6.2 million (September 2019-2020).
Company laptops are now in the homes of their employees, sharing networks with a family X-box, Amazon Alexa or Hive heating. This has made it easier for cyber criminals to access personal information and restrict access until the individual provides money or access to a work laptop.

“Organisations have invested heavily in their network security and VPN technology to enable employees to work remotely. However, if an employees’ home network is vulnerable, then criminals can exploit this. The Essential Cyber Security course protects organisations by making sure their employees cannot be easily compromised and coerced to hand over company data.” Paul Davidson, Director, Tridena.
