Opportunistic Adversaries Leveraging COVID-19 in their Nefarious Cyber Operations


How Threat Actors are Leveraging COVID-19 in their Nefarious Cyber Operations

Since the first reported case of COVID-19 in late 2019, the novel coronavirus has consumed a considerable amount of airtime on news programs, and TV and cable channels across the planet. Threat Adversaries have taken notice of the global pandemic and are now leveraging COVID-19 themes in opportunistic cyber operations.

This webinar will cover the threat intelligence CrowdStrike has published on COVID-19, and dive deep into some of the nation state and ecrime attacks CrowdStrike has witnessed since January 2020.
