Overview (Program Summary)
With the COVID-19 pandemic keeping offices across the world closed, there has been a substantial increase in threat actors exploiting lax remote working protocols. Malicious apps and websites and social engineering lures are all being leveraged for espionage, disruption, financial fraud and extortion. Whilst we are still working through COVID-19 and preparing for business resumption, remote investigation techniques will have to be implemented to reflect how organisations and their employees are operating. With everything turning more and more digital, what other risks do we need to be aware of and how can companies manage these during the current climate?
Join us for a 1-hour hands-on webinar on 15th July 2020 at 11:00 CEST.
We will use case studies to discuss the following issues:
- Cyber security compliance
- Attack trends and remedies
- Conducting remote investigations in the new normal
- Crisis management when working remotely
You will gain insights and practical advice from Control Risks’ experts:
