Abstract
In addition to altering the world's physical appearance, the COVID-19 epidemic has hastened the world's transition to a fully digital society. With an emphasis on remote work, online education, and electronic communication, this thesis explores the far-reaching effects of the pandemic on global technology use, cybersecurity threats, and government policy. This study used a mixed-methods strategy to investigate these effects in depth. A comprehensive international survey was carried out to collect information from people, organisations, and governments in many parts of the world. The results show that people have shifted dramatically towards remote employment, online schooling, and virtual communication due to the pandemic. Cybersecurity challenges, such as increased cyber-attacks, data breaches, and vulnerabilities associated with remote work settings, have increased with digital transformation. To variable degrees of effectiveness, governments and organisations have made steps to reduce these dangers. The research provides guidelines for improving cybersecurity, including risk assessments, developing incident response plans, providing enough employee training, and using cutting-edge technology like artificial intelligence and blockchain.
