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

Josh Epstein’s bio: Josh Epstein has 20+ years’ experience in technology marketing and strategy roles.

Seeing the threat landscape shift more towards targeting people instead of infrastructure, he made the transition to Insider Threat.

Josh Chin — ISACA LA President / Co-Founder and Partner at Net Force – Burning Security Considerations in a COVID-19 Driven World

We entered the roaring 2020’s filled with enthusiasm and passion. The economy is booming. Unemployment was at record lows. Overnight, the world turned upside down. Social distancing, work from home, critical workers, food and supply shortages have become the new normal. What was once a single office filled with thousands of employees is now an office of a thousand sites filled with families. Welcome to the COVID-19 world.  How do we as professionals manage risk and implement security in the new normal? What are some of the new considerations we need to consider in a COVID-19 influenced economy? Where do we need to rethink our approach to security? What should security, risk management look like in a COVID-19 world?
