The Sprawling Endpoint – IAM, BYOD and More

Join this virtual boardroom to discuss:

  • Finding the balance between security controls and a rapid pivot to digital business

Security Awareness in the Modern Era

For many information security leaders, it’s not technology, but people, that form the weakest link in the organization’s defenses. Even personal social media habits can put a large enterprise at risk, and at a time when more employees are working remote, security awareness training must be top-of-mind more than ever before.

Join this virtual boardroom to discuss:

  • Effective strategies for security awareness training, including generational differences
  • How to hold users accountable
  • Gaining buy-in to roll out robust training programs across the organization

  • The implications of new compliance laws
  • What data privacy regulations are on the horizon
  • How to stay ahead of the compliance curve
