Rush to Telecommuting = Target-Rich Environment for Cyber Criminals
As cyber criminals continue their unrelenting assaults and expand their techniques to take advantage of the opportunities created by COVID-19 fears, cybersecurity teams should be sure to keep pace with the new types of threats. This challenge will be even more pronounced as we strive to preserve business-as-usual by initiating telecommuting programs. As these programs are implemented, cyber criminals are also taking advantage of new vulnerabilities created by the rush to mass telecommuting.
Join us Thursday, March 26 at 2PM EDT for an expert-panel webinar that will offer advice for managing your remote workforce and ensuring security during these unprecedented times. Key takeaways from this session include:
- How should employees securely connect from home to the company network?
- What policies and procedures do you need to implement so remote users do not overwhelm your network’s capacity?
- Why authentication of remote users and limiting their access to the company network is so important?
- Which cyber threats you should expect to encounter specifically related to Coronavirus?
Ample time will be allotted for live Q&A during the broadcast.
