People-Centric Security Awareness – Safeguarding Remote Worker Threats for Financial Services
While there is now general consensus that the remote workforce will remain, to some extent, a permanent fixture, organizations are appraising the way that training of staff needs to adjust to this new paradigm. More so than ever, the financial services industry is seeing the necessity of phishing simulation and security awareness training as a means of mitigating security risks for their workforce. Further, regulations, such as the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) and General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) have not gone away but may have been dangerously neglected in recent months.
Security is everyone’s responsibility. And all it takes is one convincing yet fraudulent email or phone call to trick an untrained security unaware employee into opening the door to cyber criminals. How can I safeguard my financial institution from becoming yet another data breach statistic? Where are the greatest vulnerabilities and threats today? And how can I meet ever more stringent compliance and regulatory requirements with a workforce that is no longer within a traditional banking office environment?
Please join ISMG’s Nick Holland for an exclusive Virtual Roundtable that will draw from the experiences of the attendees, offering thoughts on how security and compliance needs of the remote workforce can be met.
Discussion topics will include:
- To what extent were security and compliance training needs addressed since COVID19?
- What are the greatest weaknesses in the training needs for my employees?
- What are specific threats to financial institutions from remote workers?
- How can I ensure I meet compliance requirements to meet shifting regulatory requirements?
- What are the ongoing training needs for the remote workforce?
Joining Nick to provide expert insight and case studies are Theo Zafirakos, CISO at Terranova Security, and Brandon Koeller, Principal Program Manager Lead – Office 365 Security – from Microsoft.
Date: Wednesday, July 29th, 2020
