People-Centric Security Awareness – Safeguarding Remote Worker Threats for Transportation and Logistics Industries
Nick Holland – Executive Editor, ISMG / Theo Zafirakos – CISO, Terranova Security
While there is now a 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 transportation and logistics industries are seeing the necessity of phishing simulation and security awareness training as a means of mitigating security risks for their workforce.
Security is everyone’s responsibility. And all it takes is one convincing yet fraudulent email or phone call to trick an untrained or security unaware employee into opening the door to cyber criminals. How can I safeguard my organization from becoming yet another data breach statistic? Where are the most significant vulnerabilities and threats today? And, how can I address the ongoing training needs to meet ever changing regulations?
Please join ISMG’s Nick Holland for an exclusive Virtual Roundtable that will draw from the experiences of the attendees, offering thoughts on how the 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 business disruptions?
- What are the most significant weaknesses in the training needs of my employees?
- What are the main risks to manufacturing, freight, logistics sectors from remote workers?
- How can I ensure I meet security awareness requirements to address evolving threats to business operations?
- What are the main motivations of cyber-attackers targeting these sectors?
Joining Nick to provide expert insight and case studies are Theo Zafirakos, CISO at Terranova Security, and Brandon Koeller, Principal Program Manager Lead at Office 365 Security.
