How Your Fridge Could Bring Down Your Company

COVID-19 has presented a number of challenges for companies in Asia from drops in sales to increased hygiene and employee safety requirements. Amongst all of this noise, cybersecurity has started to emerge as a key threat in a number of surprising ways. According to the CrowdStrike Work Security Index, there has been a 100X increase in malicious cyberattacks during this pandemic with hackers and scammers using hacking tools costing as little as US$20, taking advantage of the situation. Adding to this, the growing use of IoT devices at homes such as fridges, lights, fish tanks and air conditioning units offer attack points for criminals to enter home networks and then into a company’s network. Today Jeff Sandhu speaks to Brad Gray of Exclusive Networks on an overview of the main vulnerabilities of Malaysian firms and ways of how modern hackers get access to your company’s information.
