Another excellent event organized by SecureWorld – all of their events are highly recommended. It should be noted that the folks at SecureWorld have followed the (understandable) trend of placing their events online; certainly highly recommended.
The following description was either submitted by the Conference Organizer on Wednesday, May 6th 2020, or created by us.
SecureWorld Remote Sessions is a series of daily briefings on security topics of particular relevance during times of disruptive incidents and remote working challenges. Our purpose is to help the InfoSec community stay connected, encouraged, and continuing to learn and share.
Tune in for 45 minutes to an hour—either live or on-demand—and receive 1 CPE credit in the process. For speaker and topic updates, keep an eye on the Remote Sessions lineup and check back frequently as sessions are added to the calendar. Cybersecurity is one of the few jobs out there where people are actively trying to ruin your day—all day, every day. The long hours and emotional pressure of a cyber incident have an impact on security leaders’ mental, emotional, and yes, physical health.
Today, cyber leaders are tasked with navigating unprecedented new challenges, such as implementing a fully remote workforce on short notice, navigating increased cyber threats right when we’re the most vulnerable, balancing work and life at home simultaneously, and much, much more. Our strongest part of us comes out when we’re put to the test, and that is the time when we need to choose to shine our brightest, or fall.
Stress, burnout, distress, and being connected 24×7 not only impacts the health and wellness of cyber leaders, but it can also impact business decisions that need to be made during a major incident. Join Jothi Dugar, CISO, author, and wellness practitioner, as we explore:
- The mental, emotional, and physical toll of cybersecurity that leaders face
- The importance of mental health and wellness during a major incident—both personally and within cybersecurity
- Strategies to ensure employee wellness programs exist for the health and safety of you, your teams, and your organization
- Plotting a more balanced journey forward for both mental well-being and cyber wellness
