The reason companies of all sizes were able to suddenly shift to teleworking during this pandemic is due to the incredible pace of technological advancement we see every day. However, with constantly changing technology and rapid transformation come increased risks and cybersecurity challenges we must all take responsibility for. The fact is that a growing remote workforce also grows your attack surface and amplifies cybersecurity risks, which increases the chances of an incident happening at any time. To address these risks, you must implement and update cybersecurity policies, controls, and technologies to manage the attack surface and mitigate your overall cybersecurity risks. 

During this webinar, CMTC's Jacob Horne, Senior Cybersecurity Consultant, discusses: 
  • A cybersecurity overview
  • two-part strategy to manage risks enabled by telework
  • Five risk mitigations your company can employ to fight cybersecurity risks 

This webinar was originally presented on October 8, 2020 at 10:30am.
