On Tuesday 23rd March, 10:00 GMT, Paul Holland, Principal Research Analyst at the ISF will be speaking at the Infosecurity Magazine Spring Online Summit – EMEA 2021. Paul will be delivering a talk on Home to Office: A CISO’s Guide to Security Hybrid Working Environments.

In the last year, organizations big and small, private and public, have been forced to adapt their network environments to incorporate remote working models of unprecedented scale.

The challenges and implications have been vast, with security and the protection of data at the forefront of CISOs’ minds, resources and projects. Now, with continued remote working and the eventual introduction of hybrid working strategies predicted for the long-term, it is critical that security leaders address the key security issues that threaten their modern workforces.

In this session, a panel of security experts will reflect on a year like no other, address the important security lessons learned and outline the steps CISOs can take to mitigate risks and prosper in the remote and hybrid-working world.

Key takeaways:

  • A step-by-step plan of how to secure remote and hybrid
    workforces
  • Security risks posed by the return to the corporate environment
  • The top security risks posed to remote workers
  • How to prosper in complex working environments in 2021 and
    beyond
