, –pm with Paula Januszkiewicz, CEO and Founder of CQURE, Microsoft MVP and RD, Cybersecurity expert
Privacy and security are always top of mind for IT, but never more so than at this moment when the reality continues to impact how organizations operate today. Remote workforce is becoming a common practice but unfortunately, introduces a lot of risk.
A hacker's paradise?
During my presentation I will be demo'ing the cyber threats that I am seeing right now targeting my customers. During the pandemic, my team and I have analyzed many security breaches and incidents. We have also had a deeper look into phishing activities. I will demonstrate examples of attacks, starting with well-designed phishing attacks, running malicious code on the workstation, VPN pivoting, and other infrastructure attacks! Everything will be up-to-date, reflecting the current state of cyber activity. Join me during my newest session based on 2020 experiences and become familiar with the most common threats and solutions to avoid being a part of a hacker's paradise!
If you do not implement best practices to enable remote work and remain secure, a hacker's paradise may only be one keystroke away!
