    Diana Kelley, SecurityCurve| Mari Galloway, Women's Society of Cyberjutsu | Jonathan Nguyen Duy, Fortinet | Bob Rudis, Rapid7
    Working remotely has become the new normal. This, and many other changes organizations adopted last year in response to the pandemic are likely to stay for the long term. According to Gallup, about two-thirds of U.S. remote workers want to continue to work remotely. So, how can organizations continue to support their growing distributed workforce at a time where reports of security threats have increased by 400% compared to pre-pandemic levels? 

    Here is where the zero-trust approach to security comes into play. 

    Join this month's episode of The (Security) Balancing Act with Diana Kelley and guests as they discuss the emergence of zero trust (“Trust Nothing, Verify Everything”) and what it helps achieve for enterprises in the age of cloud and remote work.

    Viewers will learn about:
    - The evolution of the security perimeter and the shift to zero trust
    - Why zero trust is an approach and not a product
    - Zero Trust Network Access (ZTA) vs. corporate VPN
    - Real-world stories and practical hands-on guidance from people who have deployed a ZTA

    Speakers:
    - Mari Galloway, CEO, Women's Society of Cyberjutsu
    - Jonathan Nguyen Duy, Vice President, Global Field CISO Team, Fortinet
    - Bob Rudis, Chief Data Scientist, Rapid7

    This episode is part of The (Security) Balancing Act original series with Diana Kelley. We welcome viewer participation and questions during this interactive panel session.

  • Integrating Data Privacy and Brand Protection into your Cybersecurity Recorded: Nov 19 2020 29 mins
    Alex Nette, President, Hive Systems
    Cybersecurity is about how we protect our information, but do we ever stop to ask ourselves what we’re protecting and why? Your company likely collects customer, employee and proprietary information, so the responsibility to protect the data and respond in the event of a cybercrime is yours. This isn’t a big company problem.

    Data privacy issues and data breaches happen to small and mid-sized businesses all the time and can put your company’s reputation and ability to do business at risk.

    This 30-minute live discussion led by Alex Nette, one of the leading cybersecurity experts for small-medium businesses, takes you through a critical examination of your business practices with respect to data privacy and brand protection.
    - Do you really need to be collecting all this information?
    - Do you understand your risk points?
    - Are you in compliance with privacy laws (GDPR, CCPA) and cybersecurity best practices?
    - What if something goes wrong?

    Alex wants every business to benefit from the same strategy and tactics that large enterprises employ. In this webinar, he draws on years of experience in protecting critical data to share a perspective on how to look at your data practices and where to start.
