1 in 6 Australians victim to cyberattacks during covid-19 lockdown | #coronavirus | #scams | #covid19


Mark Gorrie, Senior Director of NortonLifeLock, Asia-Pacific, says it’s likely cybercrime increased during lockdown as a result of people’s heightened anxieties around COVID-19.

“Cyber criminals always prey on people’s fears, they are very opportunistic,” Mr Gorrie told Nine.com.au.

Mr Gorrie says identity theft is one of the major concerns among cyberattacks.

As screen time increased during the lockdown period, so did the wealth of information made available to cybercriminals.

“A lot of phishing emails are very much about harvesting information to develop and optimise,” Mr Gorrie said.

In order to stay safe online Mr Gorrie suggests taking your online hygiene as seriously as your physical hygiene.
