Threats at the Kitchen Table: Balancing Security & Usability In Remote Workforce

Presented by

Chris Pace; Technology Advocate, Immersive Labs / Paul Bentham; Chief Product Officer, Immersive Labs

About this talk

The tightrope between security and usability is nothing new, but recent events have propelled it to the fore. When the corporate world was forced out of offices and into kitchens, studies and bedrooms, businesses had to peer under every rug for the remote working policies and plans they should have made. Now, as the second wave of *you know what* begins, it’s clear that balancing remote working and cybersecurity is a perennial issue – and it’s here to stay. In Immersive Labs’ latest crisis simulation, your organization faces an imminent switch to 100% remote working – and it’s up to you to make it happen. As Head of IT for a wealth management firm, you have to balance the cybersecurity needs of the business with operations and efficiency, while preparing a workforce that has never worked remotely to make the switch. Join Chris Pace, Tech Advocate, and Paul Bentham, Chief Product Officer, as they navigate the balancing act that businesses around the world are now facing. For many, lockdown was a trial by fire – and it’s *still* not over. While the world is tentatively opening its doors again, governments are ready to slam them shut at any moment. Short term fixes must now face the test of time as offices fall quiet once more. In this webinar, we turn those short-term band-aids into long-term solutions. When your IT estate is scattered across kitchen tables and sofas, how do you keep it safe and secure? When team members can’t see IT about a dodgy email, how do you encourage best-in-class security practices? When your workforce has never worked remotely, how do you balance productivity with security? As the scenario unfolds, you’ll get your say on how the team should prepare. You’ll see the impact of your decisions on factors like operational effectiveness, security and comms quality. You’ll emerge with an understanding of: - The challenges facing businesses and security teams - The risks in getting the balance wrong - The importance of communication
