Friday, April 17, 2020 at 2:00 pm, Eastern Time

As companies around the world have transitioned their teams to work remotely as a health precaution amid the COVID-19 pandemic, there are also precautions that need to be taken to protect you and your organization from an increase in cyber security threats.

Employees using their own devices, increased use of cloud services, and exposing previously internal services to the Internet all result in more opportunity for the “bad guys” to compromise your organization’s network. Unfortunately, it is during trying times such as these, where people are particularly vulnerable, that threat actors will take advantage of the situation for their own gains. 

Field Effect is an organization that prides themselves on protecting Canadian businesses and organizations from cyber threats. The Conference Board of Canada has partnered with them to share with you the steps organizations should take to ensure cyber security isn’t overlooked during this pandemic.

Topics that will be covered:

  • Cyber threats you need to be aware of
  • Data trends we’re seeing amid COVID-19
  • Equipment needs. Is it okay to work on your own computer?
  • Video conferencing – is it secure?
  • Email security
  • How can you ensure your security in this new environment? Are there specific things to be thinking about?
