Balancing Risk and Trust for a Work-Anywhere Workforce

The past few months have seen a massive global workplace shift as IT organisations adapt to 'work from home' policies. This shift has created multiple challenges for organisations to overcome including the need to maintain a comprehensive but more risk-based and adaptive security posture.

The majority of corporate IT systems were not built or designed for mass remote working. In addition, the introduction of non-corporate equipment, unreliable home networks and the combining of work and personal applications on devices has led to an increase in sophisticated phishing attacks that threaten organisations and their infrastructures. It is no wonder that CISOs and CTOs are having sleepless nights weighing the risk of a data breach disaster against an unleashed, efficient remote workforce.

At the heart of these challenges is finding a balance of trust and risk. Join this roundtable to openly discuss with peers in the industry how you can increase trust by evaluating risk and enable greater productivity for your work-anywhere workforce.

Key Takeaways:

  • What are some of the risks that have surged in 2020 due to the global health crisis increasing remote access for your workforce? Examples could include corporate ransomware, malware, social engineering, phishing, etc.
  • What are some of the types of risk signals that ought to be monitored to detect when these types of vulnerabilities are being exploited?
  • Which ones are you monitoring today and how? Some examples include user and entity behaviour analysis, geo velocity detection aka "impossible travel", anonymous network detection, and IP reputation.
  • Is your organization's security posture shifting to a "Zero Trust" architecture, where all access is untrusted until verified? What steps have you taken so far and what's on your strategic roadmap in the short and long-term?
  • What is the role of identity in a Zero Trust environment? What role should risk management play?
