The Lock-Down – Cyber-security, Home Working & How to Avoid the Dangers Lurking

The global coronavirus outbreak is having a profound effect on the way we work, travel and go about our daily lives. Organisations throughout the UK are implementing remote working capabilities, as government advice to employers around COVID-19 emphasises the importance of isolation.

Aside from the obvious health risks, organisations may also be exposing themselves to cyber security risks as system administrators scramble to implement remote working capabilities, that would in other circumstances require months of planning and design to get right.
In light of this we are going to hold our second in a series of webinars around the current threat landscape, equipping you with vital and pertinent information.

13:00 – 13:10The Lock-Down: Cyber-security, Home Working & How to Avoid the Dangers Lurking
As we move further into lock-down territory with the government advice tightening around public gatherings or any activities that necessitate close proximity, the need to work remotely is now a must! In a world that has long claimed to be mobile and flexible in regard to working practices, many people and organisations are now realising the task is more complex than they initially thought. Having to work remotely, having to galvanise your workforce to work remotely, poses new cyber risks that are being exploited or are generally misunderstood.
Six Degrees Head of Offensive Security, Andy Swift and Head of Threat Intelligence, Thomas Cartlidge, will share their knowledge and expertise on how to deal with mobile working and a mobile workforce during these unprecedented times. They will also provide an update on the latest threats and the current threat landscape based on theory observations & research conducted during the week.
13:10 – 13:30 – Q&A

This is your opportunity to openly discuss your concerns, share your experiences and ask advice from our experts.
