Security Challenges and Opportunities of Remote Work

The COVID-19 pandemic forced many organizations to shift to a remote workforce almost overnight, most of which were not prepared for the sudden change. In their efforts to ensure their employees could remain productive, a number of organizations relaxed their security policies and unwittingly exposed their networks to compromise. As the pandemic continues, security challenges remain, but organizations also now have opportunities to find and fix vulnerabilities and improve their overall security posture, even as their employees eventually migrate back to the office.

This panel will discuss some of the issues and opportunities that organizations face in the new normal of remote/hybrid work, including:

  • How the pandemic impacted security as a whole, including some of the biggest threats organizations face
  • Lessons learned in shifting to a remote workforce quickly
  • What challenges continue and how organizations can address them effectively
