Presented by

About this talk

Earlier this year many companies experienced an incredible shift to fully remote work almost overnight, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. This accelerated the “digital transformation” journey for many companies compressing what was a multi-year timeline into a few months and making 2020 different than any other previous year. In this episode we’ll explore how the balance between security, privacy and productivity was tipped this year, and what can we expect to see in 2021 as some, but not all, organizations head back to office work with a post-pandemic mindset. The audience will hear from CISOs and Security Directors about how this year was different, what they're going to do differently going forward, and what they expect (or have already seen) as organizations get back to pre-COVID levels. Topics covered: - 2020 in review - The hard lesson that a mobile workforce is not the same as a remote workforce - How the attack surface expanded and what CISOs are doing to ensure risk doesn’t expand too - How digital transformation sped up and what they meant for security, privacy and productivity - During the speedy journey to the cloud - what mistakes were made? - Lessons learned that will be carried forward for security teams - What CISOs are doing to prepare for whatever 2021 may bring Panelists: - Mark Weatherford, Chief Strategy Officer and Board Member, National Cybersecurity Center - Amir Shaked - VP, R&D, PerimeterX - Ted Harrington, Executive Partner, Independent Security Evaluators [ISE] 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.
