The Covid-19 pandemic has led to a sharp rise in cybercrimes.

Adversaries are exploiting glitches in the technology particularly software  and stealing data and vital information relating to financial transactions which an individual performs through computing devices. The information so gathered is monetised. Attacks in the financial sector  have increased more than 2,000 times during the pandemic period.”

With a rise in the number of such crimes, the industry stakeholders are increasingly leveraging  various technologies to keep certain threats at bay.
