About this talk

In addition to all of the demographic, economic, and healthcare implications brought on by COVID-19, the once-familiar 9-to-5 office environment as we know it has changed dramatically. Remote work, once expected to be the future, is now our new reality. Even though Gartner predicted that by 2020, half of the US workforce would be working remotely, no one could have anticipated it to become ubiquitous during the COVID-19 outbreak. Now, nearly everyone has been forced to work from home for the foreseeable future. Organizations have been seeing an increase in productivity from employees and have extended their work from home policies until the end of 2020, or even indefinitely. Along with all of its benefits, remote work also brings a host of cyber security risks that are harder to tackle outside of the office. Additionally, with millions of people connecting to their corporate networks from their homes, network infrastructure is being taxed like never before, creating new issues of internet overload and skyrocketing VPN usage. While the future remains uncertain, organizations are embracing the new normal, and now is the time for CISOs and IT managers to start thinking about how they will continue securing their teams while working remotely. Join us as we discuss the future of cyber security, and how the pandemic that changed the world is inevitably accelerating the way we consume cyber and network security.
