How Do You Secure Remote Workers and Maximize Business Resiliency?
Mathew Schwartz – Executive Editor, ISMG / Rami Abbas – Security Expert, Cisco
Without a doubt, 2020 has been a year of constant change, posing a never-ending series of IT and cybersecurity challenges. Seemingly overnight, the pandemic required organizations to ensure that their employees could easily work remotely, and safely, while sacrificing nothing on the performance or productivity front.
To make that happen, many organizations have increased their adoption of cloud-based applications and services, as well as accelerated their long-term cloud and digital transformation plans. But at the same time, they still face a number of other pressures, including not just regulations, but these constant business imperatives: reduce costs, increase ROI, maximize performance.
How can CISOs and security teams balance these sometimes competing requirements? What are best practices for securing remote and on-premises workers, applying consistent information security enforcement, and maximizing business resiliency?
Please join ISMG’s Mathew Schwartz for an exclusive Virtual Roundtable that will draw from the experiences of the attendees, offering thoughts on navigating top security challenges, including safeguarding remote workers and maximizing business resiliency, as well as how to measure their own organizations’ progress.
Discussion topics will include:
- How are organizations adapting to employees and customers working from home, and the added responsibility this places on the CISO and security team?
- What specific challenges does cloud adoption pose?
- What are the best approaches to ensuring security policies get consistently enforced?
Joining Mathew to provide expert insight and case studies is Rami Abbas, Security Expert at Cisco.
