About this talk

As the world continues the work-from-home initiative in order to combat the COVID-19 threat to humanity, organizations must also consider that threat actors (hackers, Advanced Persistent Threats, etc.) may take this opportunity to exploit existing vulnerabilities normally mitigated in an office environment behind a firewall, as an example, but not necessarily mitigated in a Telework environment. This presentation will discuss the following topics - Discuss the recent rise Threat Actor exploits of Telework applications, and provide a means of ‘visibility’ by organizations to detect, analyze and remediate threats attempting to exploit vulnerabilities. - Visibility into emerging threat capabilities to introduce ransomware and malware into a remote computer/mobile device. Example: COVIDLOCK ransomware on Android smart phones and how to detect and remediate. - How VPN is only a step in the right direction towards accessing and transmitting secure, sensitive data. How additional applications and best practices can assist organizations to maintain Confidentiality, Integrity and Availability (CIA) in the near-immediate term. - The advantage of educating employees on the dangers associated with working remote, and whether use of personal devices versus company-provided devices are viable options. - How Software as a Service (SaaS), Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) providers can assist your organization in maintaining effective CIA in a Work From Home environment. The presenter will also discuss limitations and the often overlooked Shared Responsibility.
