People working at home by digital desk staff need to be alert to phishing scams during a corona virus outbreak. Deloitte warned that phishing attacks have increased and scammers have tried to use fake login pages to collect data. The report says people are now much more at risk because they no longer work as usual.
Colm McDonnell, a Deloitte risk consulting partner, says people need to think twice about everything you click. Mr McDonald said: "When dealing with emails with Covid-19 subject lines, attachments or hyperlinks, care should be taken by calling emails via social media, text.
"Use trusted resources like government websites and fact-based, up-to-date information about Covid-19." So, actually, you go out and find the information instead of clicking the link that appears. The company said that people could be vulnerable to "phishing" attacks using fake links that look like remote work applications in their office.
Mr MacDonnell said: "In the past few days, and especially this morning, our work has not been normal. When you lose your balance, when your mind is really thinking, they will grab people's defense Things. "Or, indeed, when people are tired of working in different scenarios without paying attention, things may slip away from their fingers and they will click on a stupid link and be discovered. "
