Defending the Extended Enterprise: The Latest Threats, Gaps and How to Fight Them
Tom Field – SVP – Editorial, ISMG / Stacia Tympanick – New England Sr. Solution Engineer, VMware Carbon Black
You’re painfully aware of the uptick in phishing and pandemic-themed malware targeting your remote employees. But did you know that nearly one-third of organizations, in a recent survey, said that their inability to institute multifactor authentication is the biggest threat to their company?
It’s a new and permanent extended enterprise, as cybersecurity leaders budget for 2021. What are the top threats and vulnerabilities? How have enterprises hardened their endpoint defenses, and what are some of the new defensive strategies that are best preparing them to identify and fill their security gaps – particularly in new home workspaces?
Join ISMG’s Tom Field for an exclusive roundtable discussion that will draw from the experiences of the attendees, offering thoughts on emerging threats, security gaps and new solutions/strategies to address them.
Discussion topics will include:
- What are the key findings from the Global Threat Report, and how do they match the attacks you see?
- What new cybersecurity gaps have been uncovered by the rapid deployment of the extended enterprise?
- What steps have you taken to secure your endpoints and address workspace cybersecurity?
Joining Tom to provide expert insight and case studies is Stacia Tympanick, New England Sr. Solution Engineer at VMware Carbon Black.
