Why You Need to Attend our Cybersecurity Webinars in 2022!
BeyondTrust hosts a robust cybersecurity webinar program, which has been recognized as one of the top free resources for cybersecurity knowledge. This year, we significantly diversified our webinar offerings, launching monthly Women in Security networking events, Tech Talk Tuesdays (in Americas, EMEIA, and APJ), Perks of PAM, and Cheers to Engineers.
In 2021, BeyondTrust hosted over 150 webcasts across the globe, attended by tens of thousands of your IT and security peers. Dozens of expert guest speakers each contributed unique experiences and areas of expertise; teaching cybersecurity professionals across the world how to better protect their organizations and improve compliance, as well as how to continue to develop their skills, teams, and careers. Many BeyondTrust-hosted webinars provide the added benefit of qualifying as CPE accreditation with organizations like ISACA.
Cybsersecurity webinar topic trends over the past 5 years
Today, we are sharing a ranked list of our 20 most popular cybersecurity webinars from 2021. You can now watch them all on-demand. But first, let’s take a brief trip down Memory Lane during, in retrospect, what were much simpler times…
In 2017, when we performed a similar ranking exercise, these were our most popular webinar themes:
- How to think like a hacker/counter-maneuver an attack
- Techniques for monitoring attacks and cyber threat hunting
- How to use privileged access management (PAM) and privileged password management to condense the attack surface and enforce least privilege
- How to defend against specific, newsworthy exploits (Petya, Equifax)
In 2020, the world was upended by the global pandemic. Organizations scrambled to adapt at breakneck speed to accommodate social distancing recommendations and laws. Unsurprisingly secure remote access, including remote support and privileged remote access/vendor security, and service desk efficiency leapt to the top in priority for organizations in 2020, and these were consistently the most in-demand of BeyondTrust webinar topics.
In 2021, as we will reveal below, hack and defense webinars again resonated strongly with our audience and zero trust ascended to become a much in-demand topic. Remote access-related topics remained popular, but not as overwhelmingly so as in 2020, during the mad dash to go-remote.
