Remote-work Security Keeping You Up at Night? The Remote Security Panel to The Rescue!

We have all been thinking about “digital transformation” for years now, but thanks to COVID-19, we found ourselves transforming much faster than was even remotely comfortable.  Almost overnight, we went from having an office full of people working with tried, tested and secure toolsets to trying to support an army of home-office workers. According to Gartner, this trend towards remote work isn’t going away anytime soon: 82% of company leaders say they will allow their workers to work from home at least some of the time even after the pandemic has faded away. 

We scrambled, we pivoted, we did the best we could to keep up with the needs of folks working from home, but one thing we didn’t know was going to be so scary and hard: Remote security.  Don’t panic, Tigerpaw has you covered!  In our latest panel series, we gathered some of the top minds in remote security to share their knowledge and expertise in order to help you do a better job of securing your remote workers networks and information shares. Our guests all attack remote-security from very different angles.  

The series is broken down into 3 easy-to-digest YouTube episodes.  They are: 

E1: Bad actors remote opportunities for harm:  In this episode our panel of experts gives you an unparalleled look into the makeup of those who would do your security infrastructure harm. You’ll learn who the bad actors are and why they are so excited about the remote office.

 

E2: Remote security challenges:  Remote offices have a host of new cyber and information security challenges that bad actors are more than happy to exploit. Our panel dives deep into what these new threats are and shares their advice on how to protect you and your remote workers from them. 

 

E3: Remote worker security training:  Most of your people have never worked from home before.  Beyond network security there a host of ways they can take action to ensure better overall information security.  You’ll learn about some surprising internal and external threats, both friendly and nefarious, and how your workers can protect themselves.
