While this article scared the daylights out of me, (and prompted me to go wash my hands immediately!) I couldn't help but think of a few parallels to Application Cyber Security and the need for Security Segmentation... 

1st - COVID-19 has a 'dwell time', just like that hacker that breached your perimeter firewall and is now 'setting up shop' behind your defenses... Just do a quick Google Search on 'average hacker dwell time'... And be thankful that COVID-19 rears it's ugly head in in a much shorter time - else we'd REALLY be in trouble... Imagine 'Sheltering in Place' for the length of time a bad guy might be 'Dwelling' behind your firewall...

2nd - We need to SEGMENT!!! Just look at what our society is doing right now as the EASIEST and MOST EFFECTIVE response to this pandemic! Unfortunately, we as humans are not likely to ever segment in advance... But you CAN do this with your Mission Critical IT Applications! And why on earth wouldn't you? Just sayin'...

Be Safe - Stay Segmented. And go wash your hands!
