Summary:  2020 has accelerated global reliance on remote work and cloud-based technologies. From a cybersecurity perspective, many organizations have been caught flat-footed by insider threats.

Yet, most organizations still rely on defending outside attacks to a “perimeter” that no longer exists – especially in our new work reality. Only an approach that blends people, process, and technology can successfully prevent data loss.

Join Josh Epstein, VP and Michael Griffin at Proofpoint Insider Threat Management to discuss the four steps that you can take to reduce insider risk in the new [work] reality.

In this session you will learn:

  • New realities of how a distributed workforce and third-party workers access systems and data
  • Unique risks of insider threats and how to protect against data loss
  • How to take a people-centric approach to strengthen resilience and reduce insider risk
