Coffee with Impact: Remote Work Series | Episode 3
Securing Remote Workers – Attacker & Defender Perspectives
Recent events have caused organizations to send their employees to work from home en masse.
With workers accessing and handling data from outside their usual office networks, a new swath of cybersecurity attacks are impeding businesses that were already vulnerable.
This webinar was hosted by Jeff Leder, Director of MIT Security Services, Luke Donald, Cybersecurity Engineer and Eric Serrano, VCISO.
In it, our expert security hosts discussed today’s cyberthreat landscape from the perspective of the attacker and the defender, how it has changed in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, and how business leaders can put in place the right cybersecurity measures to best mitigate these threats.
They covered topics including:
- How hackers are manipulating remote workers to infiltrate businesses
- How remote work affects an organization’s cybersecurity plan
- How organizations that have rushed to a work-from-home model are particularly threatened
- The solutions businesses can use to effectively defend themselves
