Speech Topic & Synopses
In recent years we have seen a natural shift in businesses to “bring your own device”. Then CoVid happened and the shift became exponential. What if you want to talk to someone on slack but you need to take care of your kids? You bring your phone. Securing remote workers is no longer just about the laptop, it’s about the mobile device, the home network and several other security question marks.
The situation gets even more blurred when employees go back to the office bringing devices that have inevitably been used in ways that deviate from your security policy.
In this session we’ll dive into these challenges, explore how security threats evolved with them and discuss what good looks like – now and in a future where even more types of devices need protection.
