Deskflix Season 3. Cyber security: new threats, new approaches

clock • 1 min read

Join us for our live virtual event on 18th June

Lockdown is playing tricks with our minds, boosting our perception that threats lie outside, beyond the protective moat, and that so long as we are at home, we're safe.

Cyber security professionals know this is an illusion, but instinctive beliefs are hard to shift. Threat actors know this too, which is why we've witnessed new waves of phishing and ransomware attacks subtly tailored to the Covid crisis. Unwitting homeworkers can provide the ideal back-door into an organisation.

Join us on June 18th for our live virtual event Deskflix: Cyber Security: New threats, new approaches, where we'll be looking at the tactics of the cyber criminals and what we can all do to make life more difficult for them.

New threats require new approaches, and we'll be discussing secure collaboration, employee awareness techniques and how to manage multiple remote devices to increase security for the business without placing unnecessary burdens on the workforce. There's also a look at the sort of social engineering techniques that criminals use to get us off-balance. And we'll be unveiling some exclusive research into AI-enhanced cyber security solutions.

Even better, the event is CPD accredited meaning you'll earn points as you learn.

The full agenda can be found here and the event starts at 9.30 on Thursday 18th June. Register for free today.
