Security threats on the horizon: What IT pros need to know (free PDF)

Cybersecurity breaches are nothing new. Since the COVID-19 pandemic began, IT teams have struggled to keep up with the ever-evolving array of cyberthreats. Just this year, cybercriminals have used the pandemic, and the changes to the nature of work, to unleash a wave of spam, malware, phishing scams, coronavirus-related business email compromise attempts, SMS phishing, and credential theft attacks. These cyberthreats show no signs of slowing down.
