Encrypt everything, use digital
identities for everything
mitigating cybersecurity risks

My advise during the last week Horasis digital event on Combating the Growth of Cyber Threats . While this pandemic has raised big awareness on encryption and digital identity in the cybersecurity community, as the increased use of remote connectivity or higher dependence on communication means such as email. Hackers are already profiting from this situation by launching new phishing attacks, pretending to be company managers or government agents, and trying to access computers and hijack corporate systems. ( In most companies the urgent need to enable teleworkers to keep up with their usual daily activities caught the IT infrastructures unprepared and not properly secured. Attackers are well aware of these deficiencies and will profit from it.

The use of PKI and Digital Certificates can help to secure the email messages and reduce the risks by adding digital signatures that ensure the authenticity of the messages and also by enabling the encryption of confidential data. WISeKey’s WISeID Identity Platform is available for anyone to obtain a digital certificate and immediately protect their email. Santosh Kaveti
