ISMG’s Virtual Roundtables focus on specific challenges being faced by information security executives in today’s cybersecurity landscape. Moderated by one of ISMG’s Executive Editors and a guest industry expert, Virtual Roundtables give cybersecurity professionals the opportunity to discuss threats and controls with a handful of market leaders in an informal and online setting, from which you will emerge with new ideas and solutions you can immediately put to work to improve your own organization’s defensive posture.
From Endpoint to Cloud: Achieving Zero Trust for Mobile Users
Jeremy Kirk – Executive Editor, ISMG / Aaron Cockerill – Chief Strategy Officer, Lookout
The global reliance on cloud-based infrastructure and services that are accessible from any device has prompted security teams to rethink the way they protect their organizations. To support this new and agile way of working, security leaders need to be able to balance end-user privacy with security to protect users and corporate data from phishing, malware, and other threats. The threats abound: the Australian government recently warned of a simple but effective phishing campaign aimed at diplomats that sought WhatsApp or Telegram credentials. The mobile device in one’s pocket offers a window of opportunity for attackers, but putting too many security restrictions on devices can frustrate employees.
How can you enable employees to be productive anywhere without putting data at risk? How can you create a zero trust strategy by only permitting access to corporate resources from mobile devices with a permitted risk level? How can you continuously monitor risk levels in order to modify access privileges to protect your data and applications?
Please join ISMG’s Jeremy Kirk for an exclusive Virtual Roundtable that will draw from the experiences of the attendees, offering thoughts on the challenges of managing security from endpoints to the cloud.
Discussion topics will include:
- What are the greatest challenges you face today in balancing security and freedom for remote workers?
- Did the rapid shift to remote work cause you to lower the security policies for work access on personal devices?
- How are you re-evaluating your security stance after the rapid shift to remote work?
- What technology investments do you intend to prioritize over the next year to meet the competing demands for end-user freedom and device security?
Joining Jeremy to provide expert insight and case studies is Aaron Cockerill, Chief Strategy Officer at Lookout.
