Humans are the Weakest Link – Corona Edition

Join our informative presenter Tracy Jon Sargeant at Check Point for a story of too many threat vectors to count, a story of how people make mistakes, a story with hidden twists and turns, and how persistence can pay off in a really forgettable way when it comes to Phishing and the number 81, and how a massive safe haven saves the day. Don’t worry, the story has a good ending, but you’ll need to stick around to find out.  All names will be changed to protect the innocent.

 

In this session you’ll get up to speed and current on:

– How humans are our weakest link in Corona times, in the new “Work From Anywhere” normal

– Cybersecurity “blind spots” which may have been revealed, or further disguised in Corona times

– Peek into the minds of a global Cyber research powerhouse and understand how it can benefit your security strategy

– Implications of a potential cyber “pandemic” on a different order of magnitude mirroring the biological pandemic

Conquering Cyber Risk in 3rd Party Communications

The Enterprise Content Firewall

To do their jobs, employees must share IP, PII, PHI, and all means of sensitive content with customers, suppliers, partners and a broad ecosystem of trusted 3rd parties. However, they put the organization at risk when they communicate across untrusted devices, networks, applications and identities. How can you prevent beaches and compliance violations from everyday 3rd party communications when you can’t even see what’s going on? This session explores the need for a next-generation “content firewall” that rises above packets and traffic to inspect content and communication, and thereby ensure confidentiality, compliance and control of risky 3rd party business processes.

Though parts of the world are slowly transitioning back to ‘normal’, cyber-attackers have not slowed down and may even be waiting to take advantage of new business challenges.

There will also be focus on the future of remote working as organizations find themselves balancing technological advancement and the unforeseen risks that this brings.
