Getting Ready for a New Era of COVID-19 Related Phishing

COVID-19 has rapidly taken over the headlines across the globe. As
with many other major events, threat actors are quick to adapt
relevant topics as part of their phishing campaigns to increase the
likelihood of success. The same rings true for COVID-19, especially
due to its global impact.

On this latest Eye on Security podcast, John Atrache, Principal
Consultant for Mandiant, joins me to discuss all things email in the
time of COVID-19. We cover a variety of topics, including how threat
actors are continuously updating their phishing campaigns as new
developments around the pandemic arise. We also cover the importance
of organizations increasing their vigilance during these challenging
times, and how to implement quick and effective hardening controls to
mitigate the risk of successful phishing attack.
