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?
