COVID-19 has changed the way we live and work oftentimes blurring the lines between home, work, and school. While many see COVID-19 primarily from a health crisis, bad actors see it as an opportunity to steal identities and extort money from companies. In 2020, many companies had to shift overnight to a remote workforce to stay competitive. The resulting shift to remote work had major implications for the world of cybersecurity. For many, it involved speeding up digital transformation activities to accommodate a remote landscape. To keep businesses operational, many companies minimized typical security measures, creating new levels of vulnerability and risk. As the lines between work and home continue to blur, security risks continue to soar. This panel of cybersecurity experts will discuss the threats and solutions to addressing remote working. This panel will also share long-term remote security strategies companies should consider when addressing remote working.
