About this talk

In today’s enterprise journey to digital transformation, remote work is on the rise. Advancements in technology make it possible for employees to work from anywhere, but also introduce a new set of challenges for IT departments. Unsecured WiFi networks, unmanaged personal mobile devices, and phishing scams make it easy to steal user credentials and difficult to securely manage geographically dispersed teams. While the concept of remote work is not new, it is becoming more prevalent for modern businesses. Recent global events are driving these numbers even higher, making it imperative for organizations to set processes and systems in place that not only secure remote workers, but do so without hindering productivity. We are already seeing hackers taking advantage of the current state of business uncertainty with targeted phishing attacks. Companies need to rapidly increase security planning for workers outside of organizations. But where to begin? Join this webinar to learn five critical ways companies can protect their remote workforce from common vulnerabilities such as credential theft, account takeovers, and phishing attacks. In this webinar we will discuss best practices for protecting applications and systems such as: - Identity and access management (IAM) platforms - Remote VPN access - Computer logins - Password managers - Authenticator applications
