Dealing with Cyber Security issues in a post pandemic world
2021 may be the year the world starts to overcome a health pandemic, but the effects on how work is undertaken and the consequent evolution of threats to organizations’ information assets have not yet been fully felt.
The shift to distributed working, accelerated by the pandemic, continues to disrupt organizations’ attempts to mitigate risk. The impact for many organizations has been catastrophic as evidenced by the surge in cyber-attacks in the immediate aftermath of the pandemic.
As security teams grapple with updating organization-wide policies, there are multiple implications thrown up by a distributed workforce including Shadow IT, lack of employee awareness, the insider threat of willful employees collaborating with malicious actors et al – all these coupled with the brazenness of the hackers who may well have found an easy back-door entry into an apparently ‘secure’ Enterprise.
Is there a solution to this issue?
This session will cover the following key areas
-Enforcing the Enterprise Security Posture to a distributed workforce
-The importance of employee accountability & ownership in securing the Enterprise
-Identifying & addressing the scourge of the insider threat - malicious cooperation between outside actors & willful employees.
