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.
How Will COVID-19 Impact the Future of Cybersecurity?
As the widespread business impact of the COVID-19 pandemic becomes increasing evident, the abruptness and unprecedented scale at which the workforce has been compelled to work remotely, has given rise to complex and pervasive cybersecurity challenges.
While these massive disruptions caused by COVID-19 have been challenging, they have also resulted in lasting changes to the workplace – many more users are now accessing public and private apps in both the cloud and datacentre remotely, which require a robust security fabric. Organizations are working hard to meet these challenges and to sustain critical business functions in a secure manner, in era of ‘Work-from-Home’.
The bigger, imminent question looming on the horizon for security teams now, is what the post-COVID-19 reality is going to look like, and what do they prepare for? What are some learnings from the recent months that can provide some strategic insight in these unprecedented times?
Please join ISMG’s Varun Haran for an exclusive Virtual Roundtable that will draw from the experiences of the attendees, offering thoughts on the realities of the remote workforce cybersecurity challenges, the global best practices security practitioners need to employ in the current scenario, and how they can prepare for what is to come.
Discussion topics will include:
- How prepared were you for disruption? – understanding the threat landscape;
- Top challenges and key recommendations for securing the remote workforce;
- Looking beyond COVID-2020: how will this change cybersecurity?
Joining Varun to provide expert insight and case studies is Sudip Banerjee, Director of Transformation Strategy, Asia Pacific and Japan, at Zscaler.
Date: Thursday, 13 August 2020
Time: 15:30 – 17:00 MYT
