Covid accelerated digital adoption and accelerated the rise of the remote worker. About 42% of the workforce is now working from home – up from 9% prior to Covid – that is almost a 500% increase. About 60% of remote workers report being as productive if not more productive. Businesses are showing reduced costs – more than just physical space – and greater worker safety.
This has not gone unnoticed by Hackers. Phishing attacks are up 600%. Why? Because they work. The average Phishing attack costs a medium sized business $1.6M.¹ It is not unusual for a small business to go out of business after a Phishing attack.

Yigal Unna made these comments after an Iranian attack in April that was designed to subvert the systems controlling chlorine levels in an Israeli water treatment facility failed. If the attack had been successful, the residential water supply would have been contaminated, poisoning hundreds of people and causing a mass water shortage in areas of the nation. In response, Israel undertook a cyber counteroffensive that knocked offline the port of Shahid Rajaee, paralyzing it for days and devastating associated supply chains.
