Identity Defined Security Alliance Member Webinar Series: BeyondTrust Presents Why VPN Isn’t Enough – Supporting a Remote Workforce in the Post-COVID Era

DENVER, January 14, 2021 

WHAT: The Identity Defined Security Alliance (IDSA) provides frameworks and practical guidance to help organizations put identity at the center of their IT security strategy. In this live webinar, Morey Haber, CTO/CISO of BeyondTrust and author of four cybersecurity books, will discuss practical guidance on how to quickly implement and scale strong security protocols to enable long-term remote work.

Topics covered will include:

  • Risks and Challenges of VPNs
  • Shadow IT and free, or consumer-grade, tools
  • Bring your own device (BYOD) in the Post-COVID Era
  • Secure remote access & endpoint security – the foundation for effective remote working

WHEN: Thursday, February 4th, Noon ET/ 9 a.m. PT.

WHY:With the rapid development of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) in 2020, many security professionals had to come up with disaster recovery (DR) plans and make quick decisions to allow remote work en masse. The goals: keep the organization productive during this crisis and ensure that any unacceptable security risks are not created in the process. While most DR plans focus on maintaining productivity in the face of a single catastrophic event, Coronavirus represents a long-term threat that might stretch the typical disaster recovery model to its brink of coverage.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND:According to a recent PWC survey, 83% of leaders say the forced shift to remote working has actually been a success, indicating that some form of remote working is here to stay. Security leaders who are responsible for the strategy for securing a remote workforce long term should attend this webinar.
