Presentation: Cybersecurity in the era of Cloud computing and Remote work

During these times, some industries have seen a field of increase in cyber attacks. Phishing tops this ranking, a technique of inducing individuals to reveal personal information, passwords, and credit card numbers. Phishing targets the weakest link in the Cybersecurity chain: humans.

Let’s not overlook security when clearly the focus shifted on enabling productivity while working from home.

In this talk we’ll be discussing topics like:

  • Cloud Security and Cloud Computing trends,
  • How do we secure the RPA,
  • Endpoint/Antivirus Security,
  • Multi-Factor/Passwordless Authentication (MFA),
  • Security Education.
