The New Normal: The Impact of COVID-19 on the Future of Network Security

Presented by

Stan Mesceda, Senior Product Manager for High-Speed Encryption, and Julian Fay, CTO at Senetas

About this talk

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic offices have been closed and workers displaced causing a transition in our network utilization. Increased data in motion from video conferencing, email, make-shift work environments, and remote applications have overloaded our critical infrastructure that we rely on every day. Unfortunately, numerous reports have cited an overwhelming increase in the number of cyber-attacks over the past few months. As we continue to adapt it is clear that our high-speed networks are critical to business continuity as it pertains to our most important resources such as data centers, remote facilities, utility grids, and transportation networks. Any compromise to the data that flows to or between these elements would be catastrophic. Modern organizations must rely on a complex mix of connectivity over both public Internet and private WANs. IT professionals and security administrators are faced with the challenge of balancing requirements for network performance while maintaining security as more data traverses networks out of their control. Our experts for this session will discuss current and future network architectures and give advice on how to secure your network without compromising performance.
