Since the start of COVID-19, there’s been a dramatic rise in the number of cyberattacks and data breaches—particularly in the life sciences industry.
In fact, according to the World Health Organization, staffers at the UN agency have seen a fivefold increase in cyberattacks over the same period last year.
To gain a better understanding of cybersecurity trends, opportunities, and challenges in today’s evolving threat climate, Arctic Wolf partnered with BioPharma Dive’s Brand Studio. Together, we surveyed 100 security leaders and have published our results in Cyberattacks in the Time of COVID-19 and Remote Work.
We discovered that for many healthcare organizations, concerns about the pandemic—the risks to staffers and patients, the increased pressure to develop vaccines and find cures—has taken precedence over cybersecurity. In addition, the move to a remote workforce has exponentially increased the number of devices and the amount of sensitive data at risk.
In this report, learn how security operations address major cybersecurity issues that put healthcare companies at risk, as well as current themes, stats, and advice, including:
- Top challenges IT teams face when growing a remote workforce
- Which threats have increased dramatically over the past few months
- Security operations investments teams have made since COVID-19
- How to keep your organization safe despite today’s growing threat landscape
