As companies of all sizes have been forced to operate remotely during the COVID-19 Pandemic, most have been needed to re-architect their entire business security strategy while others have been compelled to create one from the ground up.
Cyber-Criminals recognized this early on, with a 300-400% increase in very specific cyber-attacks and Ransomware cases since the pandemic started. How will you recover if you are attacked? What can you proactively do to minimize the impact?
Companies will face many challenges ahead as they realize they CAN run their businesses successfully with remote employees. While it doesn’t work for every organizations, many of them are already considering downsizing their physical footprint as a cost-savings measure, which in turn is increasing the remote risks they are already experiencing.
Join us on July 8 as Tony Rucci explores some of the issues you’ll need to deal with as your workforce operates remotely:
- Why do I care about an employee’s “home network”? Isn’t it just like they are traveling and working from a hotel?
- Security implications of allowing personal computers to connect to business networks.
- Break-Fix Challenges and “Help Desk” liability issues for personal computers.
- To Scan or NOT to Scan. What will I see? What do I do when I see it? Who’s going to see it?
- Should you provide security and business tools to remote workers to use on their home networks? Free Anti-Virus and Malware Protection? Keystroke logger?
- What are some of the way’s criminals are using the WFH model to attack businesses?
- Proactive security solutions to minimize the impact if your companies/employees are attacked.
Tony’s presentation will wrap up with some real-world examples, leaving you with food for thought and resources to help protect your companies as well as your personal systems and interests.
