It also reflects on what the future market landscape may look like due to COVID-19, suggesting that incidences of cybercrime may inevitably increase as economies go into recessions and people struggle with financial difficulties. This blog offers some tips for consumers and businesses to stay safe during the pandemic, reminding readers to rethink and re-evaluate their current data protection plans in place.
