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.
Lessons Learned: Secure Access for the Fully-Remote Workforce
Most organizations were required to quickly support distributed workforce/remote teams. And with an uncertain end-date to these work from home mandates, many of these companies have had to move to supporting a fully-remote workforce.
Moving teams to all remote-work policies allows for continued productivity and increased flexibility, but there are unique access and security challenges to consider.
How do you ensure that your employees have the right tools and access to applications and equipment to keep your organization moving forward while keeping your systems and data secure? How do you verify that your security protocols are being followed on employee-owned devices? What lessons can be shared from the early days of a fully-remote workforce?
Please join ISMG’s Nick Holland for an exclusive Virtual Roundtable that will draw from the experiences of the attendees, offering thoughts on the challenges and solutions discovered by their peers in these early days of a fully-remote workforce.
Discussion topics will include:
- How can I quickly deploy new apps and provide access to existing cloud and on-prem services?
- How do I deploy effective multi-factor authentication (MFA)?
- What access policies should I set for remote workers?
- What collaboration tools should I use?
Joining Nick to provide expert insight and case studies is Thomas Bieser, Vice President of Customer Solutions at Okta.
