Many organizations were forced to quickly shift priorities when the COVID-19 crisis struck. Cybersecurity operations and the technology to support this shift may have been available, but often were not configured properly or fully understood by users. This session will discuss the importance of business continuity and pandemic readiness as well as issues that have affected cybersecurity readiness. We will also provide guidance for implementing basic controls that can aid organizations in increasing their cybersecurity maturity. We'll also examine current trends, such as shifting IT support focus from routine tasks to long-term goals and establishing new security requirements for remote workforces and managing their complexity.
Upon completion of this program, participants will be able to:
- Discuss COVID-19 crisis shifts in budgets and priorities
- Explain new risks in diverse working environments
- Identify virtual tasks and security concerns demanding more IT support
