One of the effects we’ve seen from the COVID-19 crisis is that the digital evolution of industries has accelerated from both a consumer and business perspective. But with the shift to digital and AI-driven applications happening so rapidly, companies are grappling with new challenges such as, how do we deliver frictionless customer experiences in a virtual environment?
The types, forms, and frequency of cyberattacks that companies face continue to rapidly morph into new variations. A new global study, the 2020 Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report, outlines the patterns and trends behind recent data breaches and attacks.
No one has been left untouched by COVID-19. The test we’ve been faced with is unimaginable. Regardless of how well prepared we have been with contingency plans built out of past catastrophes – tsunamis, volcanos, earthquakes, hurricanes, fire – nothing could have prepared us to the point where we would have considered all 40,000 workstations and 50,000 employees having to work at home.
Life is complicated and rarely goes as planned. For customer-facing companies, sudden emergencies like natural disasters or data breaches can trigger waves of consumers looking for help and answers. Seasonal issues can creep up on companies too, when customer interactions wildly fluctuate throughout the year.
