The COVID-19 pandemic has exposed more than policy and social gaps, says U.K.-based cybersecurity expert John Walker. It’s also manifested in digital exposures born out of lack of preparedness and bad practices. Walker offers insights on improving the cyber response.
In a video interview with Information Security Media Group, Walker discusses the cybersecurity impact of COVID-19 in terms of:
- Digital exposures;
- Lack of preparedness;
- Heightened threats and bad practices.
Walker is a visiting professor at Nottingham Trent University. He serves on the advisory board for the Research Center in Cyber Security – KirCCS – at the University of Kent, and he formerly served in Royal Air Force security and counter intelligence.
