Learn how COVID-19 is changing cyber risk considerations for good, how to effectively mitigate cyber risks and what HR can do in order to turn employees into a “human” firewall.

The global novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has led to stay-at-home orders or businesses simply choosing to close offices to achieve the social distancing meant to slow the spread of the disease That’s led to many companies’ employees working remotely, some for the first time, which is a development that may soon become the new way of working. This greatly increases the cyber exposures faced by individuals and organizations, and how data breaches are managed and mitigated in a decentralized workforce.

This program reviews the changing landscape of cyber threats through and post COVID-19, and examines the mechanics of incident response in the event of a breach. This will also provide HR specialists with recommendations on how to boost their organization’s cyber resilience by leveraging culture, employee training, and identity and access management.

Learning Objectives:

  • Staying on top of current cyber trends
  • How COVID-19 has resulted in increased ransomware attacks
  • Incident response “how-to’s” and best practices
  • HR’s role in promoting cyber resilience
  • COVID-19 recovery and planning for the new norm (cyber “human factor” considerations)

  • Who Should Attend?
