DIVERSIFICATION OF CYBER THREATS IN THE CONTEXT OF THE EVOLUTION OF THE SARS-CoV-2 PANDEMIC
With the onset of the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic, the challenges in communications, information technology and cybersecurity have become much more numerous and complex at the same time. The continued transfer of certain daily activities in cyberspace will give rise to new major challenges, with many elements of novelty and unknown. It is difficult to predict how the virtual space will evolve in the future and how it will respond to the requirements formulated by society. State or non-state entities need to adapt quickly to the new demands of cyberspace. History has shown us that major changes will inevitably lead to other changes in which society will have to find the right solutions to ensure its continuity. The evolution of society in the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic shows us every day that the development of communications infrastructure and information technology, as well as ensuring cyber security, are essential elements without which certain sectors of activity cannot function at normal parameters.
