Cyber Daily: Companies Battle Another Pandemic: Skyrocketing Hacking Attempts

Aug. 24, 2020 9:05 am ET | WSJ Pro

Good day. If poor passwords and shared laptops are the stuff of cybersecurity nightmares, corporate security chiefs aren’t getting much sleep these days.

Other news: Facebook CEO Zuckerberg stoked anti-TikTok fears; SEC strengthens privacy in market-surveillance database; fertility app shared data; and Australian “Real Housewives” star tricked in cyber scam.
