The Weakest Link: Remote Work and Cybersecurity
It’s no surprise why cyberattacks are more frequent and more successful than ever before. Technologists learn early that people are the weakest link in any security model. Globally, one-third of all local governments were hit by ransomware attacks and we are not learning from these past mistakes. In fact, protecting enterprise data – coupled with a remote workforce – will require a change in operational policies and larger investments in technology security. Attendees will will explore different approaches for risk mitigation including solutions for hardening enterprise applications, policy options such as staff training, and cyber insurance. Speakers will also provide strategies for how IT professionals and finance professionals can work together to implement these safeguards successfully.
