By this point in the coronavirus outbreak, have you come to the conclusion that working from home is both one of the best and one of the worst things that could happen to your professional productivity? We certainly have – and it seems that many criminals have too.

With digital cooperation becoming quickly the new normal for threat actors, and as crime is switching from street corners to the dark alleys of the web, the underground economy is booming: Hey, after all, crises are opportunities in disguise. And the crises of 2020 have created a plethora of opportunities to make money illegally, unethically, or both – such as through online drug sales, scams preying on people’s fears and anxieties, or attempts to fraudulently obtain stimulus payments.

How is COVID-19 impacting a wide variety of types of cybercrime, and what are the latest threats you need to know about?

For answers to these questions, we invite you to join Cybersixgill and leading cybersecurity and managed security services provider Trustwave for a webinar on June 23rd at 11 a.m. EDT / 8 a.m. PDT / 4 p.m. BST.
