Travel Restrictions and Work-From-Home Policies Do Not Have to Put Your Organization at Risk

Posted by Mehul Patel on Mar 10, 2020

It’s easy to feel helpless as Covid-19 continues to spread throughout Asia and the rest of the world. Health professionals are urging people to avoid crowds and public spaces, forcing many workplaces—from factories to office buildings—to shut down. But business must continue. An economic downturn caused by the epidemic would only make things worse, preventing people from getting the help and resources they need while exacerbating impacts from the disease.

Bad actors never rest

Creating legitimate-looking fake communications from Google or Microsoft is easy and inexpensive. Novice attackers with little or no coding experience can purchase phishing packs on the dark web that they can customize and then send emails to specific targets based on social engineering intelligence. Free and compromised accounts can also be used as an attack vector , hosting documents that contain malware or links to fake web forms or other malicious sites.

Introducing cloud-based data loss prevention with Menlo Security

Sensitive data leaving a company via the web is a major concern for many networks. Bad actors perpetrate 69 percent of external data breach attacks and represent the largest threat to organizations that are not using cloud isolation. For our customers, however, we prevent these attacks.

Because external actors frequently rely on phishing and malware insertion, Menlo Security customers are largely protected through our browser and email isolation. The remaining threat vector then moves to the company’s own employees.

Emotet attacks— a spike to start the year...

The Emotet malware is a very destructive banking Trojan that was first identified in 2014. Over the years it has evolved with new capabilities and functionalities, prompting cybersecurity agencies like the Australian Cyber Security Centre and US-CERT to issue advisories. Emotet malware generally spreads via malicious documents that drop a modular Trojan bot, which is used to download and install additional remote access tools. We wrote a blog post in January 2019 about how the malware had changed tactics, leading to a spike in the number of Emotet malware attacks. In the last week, we have observed a spike in the number of Emotet malware transactions across our customer base. US-CERT has also issued a fresh advisory regarding the recent spate of attacks.

Some vulnerabilities pose a much greater risk to the organization than others and should be prioritized.
