Cybersecurity: Companies are the Main Victims of Cyber-Attacks

The pandemic has not only represented a challenge in health and economic terms but has also increased the number of cyber threats directed at companies, making the role of cybersecurity more relevant than ever.

Cyber-crooks are taking advantage of these uncertain times to launch digital attacks on companies of all sectors and sizes.

These attacks can represent a serious blow to any business, especially in economic and credibility terms, as a data leak can cause a company to lose the trust of its customers.

1. Cybersecurity on the rise

As we have already mentioned, the pandemic – coupled with the spread of teleworking – is significantly increasing cybersecurity gaps in companies. This is mentioned in the Digital Trust Survey 2021 report, prepared by PwC based on the opinions of 3,249 managers and technology managers in companies around the world. The report also reveals that, in this context, and despite the difficult situation from a business point of view, companies are betting on increasing their investments in cyber security and increasing their teams. According to the study, 55% of that were interviewed plan to increase their cybersecurity budgets in 2021, thus making a leap in the use of digital technologies.
