Cybersecurity in the time of pandemic
Covid-19 made us realize that the world will never be the same again. Organisations have changed their operating model and digitization of various business processes has sped up. Prompt business transformation is followed by intensified activity of cybercriminals. Every day the media inform about data leaks caused by successful attacks. CERT Orange Polska confirms this trend – in the first quarter of 2020 we recorded 30% more DDoS attacks compared to the same period of 2019. In April it was 300% more (!). It proves criminals did not sit idle when businesses implemented remote operations. Effective attack on corporate network infrastructure may cause its unavailability and make remote work impossible for hundreds of employees using company internal resources. Over 400 businesses from different branches, including financial institutions and banks, are using our protection from DDoS attacks.
Many attacks could have been avoided if companies had implemented the process of constant monitoring of vulnerability of applications and systems, both internal and the online ones. Orange Polska and Integrated Solutions offer professional security audits of processes and procedures as well as pentests and periodic scanning that minimalize security gaps. Monitoring employees’ activity on company devices during remote work is gaining in significance. Growing number of companies decide to use technology to verify their activity. Orange Polska offers safe and market-proven solutions also in this respect.
There is also CyberTarcza that protects individual users and small companies operating in the network of Orange Polska. Corporations and big institutions can use our CyberWatch. Both solutions block access to phishing websites and protect from malware and ransomware attacks. Active StopPhishing service informs client about website imitating his brand and blocks it.
Security Operations Center of Orange Polska provides cybersecurity services to over 500 Customers, and it is just a small part of solutions offered by Orange Polska and Integrated Solutions.
