The Sprawling Endpoint – IAM, BYOD and More


For large swaths of 2020, work would grind to a halt without the ability for employees to remotely access critical systems and information. With business’s survival on the line, many CISOs must set a strategy that securely enables the future of remote work.

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:
