We have been through a great deal this year, those who have survived so far, may get caught up in the recovery next year i.e. job losses, shrinking of businesses.
COVID-19 is a very big challenge, but it is a virus, it can be tackled, there are approaches to overcome it.
But regardless of what is happening, organisations need "Security & Privacy", in order to survive the onslaught of attacks, and now the criminals have everyone's attention, everything and everyone is now jumping on the bandwagon. Spam, Phishing, BEC and additional Scams being directed at Hospitals and areas upon which communities depend upon.
However, we must remain strong, motivated, even if we hit negative comments, thoughts from leaders around us, businesses cannot survive the increased onslaught of attacks - now they have a foot hold, and they are making more money than legal legitimate organisations i.e. they don't pay tax, they hide their presence.
And the silly thing is we keep feeding the criminals, by using social media, giving away information on a daily basis, feeling lonely then relationship scams which fleece people at their lowest ebb and then the victim is too scared to front up and say it happened to me etc. Its embarrassing for them.
What is your digital footprint, are you giving too much information, given away information which makes it easier for criminals to win - we are just making too easy for them.
So everyone, stay strong, if you are stuck, don't give up, volunteer, make yourselves indispensable and show your worth, but do not give in - stay positive, and use this opportunity to grow your own selves, your capabilities and use your time wisely. Plus give yourself time, to rest, relax, but also for thinking, even if you don't you are in the background. Give yourself space, but keep yourself motivated and let this rub off on others around you.
You owe it to your own selves.
