- An immediate and vigorous security awareness training campaign
- Fully patched machines in the cloud, the office -and- at the house

For the bad guys, this is the ultimate in target-rich environments.
As rapidly mounting infections in western countries drive a growing climate of fear, employees need to be educated and trained to expect these kinds of emails, accurately identify them, and handle them safely.
