For years, #cybersecurity firms have stressed the need for stronger #IoT device security. And now, as the #coronavirus pushes more and more employees to work remotely, the issue of digital security is evident. As hackers use this opportunity to steal our data and weaken U.S. communications, rigorous device testing and security measures are needed to protect our country. Read more about how #hackers have already used the coronavirus to their advantage below.
