Conference Event Summary
The following description was either submitted by the Conference Organizer on Friday, January 29th 2021, or created by us.
With many staff now working remotely, organizations have had to adjust their IT strategies to cope. Cyber strategies have had to adapt too, with new vulnerabilities coming to the fore. According to recent research from Computing, 53 percent of organizations have suffered social engineering attacks which play on the uncertainties created by the pandemic, and 44 percent have seen increased malware attacks. The same number feel that they are more vulnerable to malware now than at the start of 2020.
Whilst the volume and severity of cyber attacks seem constantly to rise, there are new tools and strategies for organizations to deploy in their defence. Most find that a combination of regular training, a spread of the right tools, and visibility of logs and monitoring dashboards reduces risk to acceptable levels. But which tools are the best fit for your organization? How can you make training relevant and memorable, and should you link it to KPIs? How do you ensure you’re seeing the right alerts and avoid information overload?
Hosted by Computing, the CyberSecurity Festival will provide a combination of presentations, panel sessions, fireside chats, workshops, and networking to help you answer all of these questions and more. Attendees will hear from the industry’s top experts, some of the biggest and most successful brands, and have their opportunity to put their questions to them directly.
