The COVID-19 pandemic has created unique cyber vulnerabilities for businesses and further accelerated the need for companies to develop cybersecurity strategies as employees work remotely. Cybersecurity has increasingly become one of the most important issues for businesses to tackle but also continues to be one of the least understood and most often overlooked. Whether its managing vulnerabilities of your employees’ home networks or moving your confidential files to the cloud, Dr. Scott Shackleford, Cybersecurity Program Chair and Director of the Ostrom Workshop Program on Cybersecurity and Internet Governance at Indiana University, and Dr. Gene Spafford, Professor of CS and Emeritus Executive Director of CERIAS at Purdue, will tell us how we can protect our company and our employees in this new normal and digital age.
Some of the topics covered in this session are:
Home network vulnerabilities
Confidential documents saved locally causing regulatory and liability concerns
Resurgence in phishing activity
Pros/cons of moving everything to the cloud
