Former Senior Advisor at Cambridge Global Advisors, Jane Holl Lute, outlines the heightened risk of cyberattacks during the COVID-19 pandemic in a new op-ed for The Washington Post.
Ms. Lute, a former Deputy Secretary of Homeland Security and an expert on cybersecurity who currently serves on the board of the Center for Internet Security, explains why the upending of daily life in recent months has raised concerns regarding the United States’ preparedness for a cyber assault on corporate networks and how actors can mitigate risks as millions of Americans adjust to working remotely.
