How the Pandemic Affects Private and Business Security

The COVID-19 pandemic moved social processes online, which made preserving business and public security a priority task. Group-IB founder spoke about major cyberthreats when working remotely.

«When business owners make a decision to cut expenses on cybersecurity, they need to be aware of the consequences. At trying times like these, when multiple measures are being taken to save businesses, employees that are being let go may have malicious intent and try to copy sensitive data. At times, those threats arise involuntarily: working from a remote computer, an employee may not even be aware of possible threats. For instance, when operating a router with dated software, a user may not even notice the changes in the routing chart. This makes a system susceptible to attacks,» Mr. Sachkov explained.

About the expert: Ilya Sachkov is a member of cybercrime expert committees such as: the State Duma of the Russian Federation, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation, the Council of Europe, and the OSCE. Additionally, Ilya is a co-chair of the Cybercrime Committee at the Russian Association for Electronic Communications (RAEC), and member of the Coordination Center for TLD RU. He received three EY Entrepreneur of the Year National Awards in various IT-related categories. In 2018, he was ranked among the 100 Brightest People of the Year according to Expert RA and among Russian People of the Year according to Russia Beyond.

The full online interview with Ilya Sachkov on How the Pandemic Affects Private and Business Security is available on the Roscongress Foundation channel.
