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.
Pandemic Threat Landscape: Everything Old is New Again
Yes, since the advent of the pandemic crisis there has been a measurable uptick in ransomware, phishing and other socially-engineered attacks. But the tactics and techniques aren’t new – they are just a new spin on attacks you already were seeing. The difference is: Now you are also supporting a near 100% remote workforce.
How are you educating this remote workforce to help defend against these attacks? Do you continue to conduct the same desktop exercises you did pre-pandemic? How are you helping your team balance your enterprise’s cybersecurity needs with the human need to care for themselves and their families during this long-term crisis?
Please join ISMG’s Tom Field for an exclusive Virtual Roundtable that will draw from the experiences of the attendees, offering thoughts on the challenges of detecting and responding to threats during the pandemic and beyond.
Discussion topics will include:
- What are the most common threats you are detecting?
- How have your tooling and processes changed since deploying your remote workforce?
- How do you balance cybersecurity needs and your team’s work/life balance?
Joining Tom to provide expert insight and case studies is Jimmy Astle, Senior Threat Researcher at VMware Carbon Black.
