COVID-19 has created global disruption on a scale not seen in the modern era. The education sector, in particular, has been deeply impacted. In fact, a March 2020 report by the United Nations indicates that some 300 million schoolchildren worldwide unable to continue with school as a result of the outbreak. The domestic scope is just as daunting: In a single Seattle school district, the virus has forced nearly 24,000 students out of in-person classes. The solution many schools nationwide are turning to is remote learning. While some districts are well-prepared for the shift, many find themselves without the needed technology to enable remote learning at all.

Cybercriminals love a crisis. Amid the COVID-19 outbreaks, companies are even more vulnerable than usual to cyberattacks. As more business owners move operations completely online and larger organizations are directing employees to work from home, remote work means a rise in the number of devices employees are using and an increase in the use of online conferencing tools, letting hackers cast a much wider net in which to snare potential targets.
Join us on April 28 at Noon CDT for “Keeping Cybercriminals at Bay—and Protecting Your Business—During a Crisis,” a webinar from Comcast Business. We’ll outline the ways in which businesses represent targets for hackers, what new challenges the COVID-19 crisis presents, analysis of threat types, and the steps companies are taking to mitigate cybersecurity risks during workplace and business disruption.
