When major disasters strike, there are many individuals who take advantage of these opportunities. Such is the case with scammers and con-artists alike. As many countries are struggling to overcome COVID-19, scammers have used this opportunity to cause further worry and concern over people.
The world of cybersecurity is an interesting world filled with many brilliant minds. Every day we are working on building more security systems only to find exploits that can be patched up later. On top of that, you have the ongoing conflict between professionals, individuals, and businesses against hackers.
The number of security threats is massive and ever growing. It’s easier for people to become hackers, spread viruses, malware and trojans to others than before. And technology has expanded so much to the point that the damages can be frequent, costly, and affect many people.
For any IT department, mobile apps can be a total nightmare. There are millions out there and more are being made every day. Unfortunately many of the apps never were developed with security in mind.

Each one has had their own rate of success, but through their efforts, we’ve learned some methods to help with mitigating risks.
