This Easter bank holiday, while you are enjoying your relaxing hot cross bun and cup of tea away from the office, CSG are working 24/7 to ensure that our customers don't experience the impact from increased cyber attacks over the bank holiday weekend.

Cybercriminals maintain their operations year-round, heedless of holiday breaks. As Easter weekend approaches, most individuals anticipate quality time with family over the long weekend. However, holidays like Easter Sunday also elevate cybersecurity threats for businesses. Many enterprises either shutter operations or operate with minimal staff during these periods.

The holidays present an ideal scenario for cybercriminals to exploit unsupervised IT networks and systems. Given this vulnerability, organisations must assess whether their security measures encompass a strategy tailored to combatting holiday cyberattacks.

The holiday season presents yet another opportunity for such attacks. If given the option, do you think a hacker would prefer to target your organisation when your IT security team is fully operational, or when it’s not? What do you think they would choose?

When you run a business, you may not have the people in house to constantly be thinking about a cyber attack – especially when your staff are busy being creative! This has led to cyber criminals attacking on bank holidays and over the Easter holidays strategically. Moreover, the Covid pandemic has exacerbated this threat, leading my businesses to operate with notable cybersecurity deficiencies stemming from the sudden transition to remote work.

Cybercriminals capitalise on these weaknesses to infiltrate systems, with vulnerabilities escalating due to reduced network oversight during holiday periods. While attackers employ various tactics, social engineering, phishing, spear-phishing, malware and ransomware remain the most prevalent.
