Synopsis and overview of the session

As the world moves back into post-COVID operating model, cybersecurity has emerged as a critical concern to supporting the changing demand for workplace flexibility brought on by back-to-office and stay-remote hybrid working models.

With the evolution of technology through AI, software and hardware capability, so too are the concerns to maintain cybersecurity resilience organization wide. Staying responsive to these workplace demand changes has developed problems for application sprawl, threat alert management and data overload leading to fatigue for under resourced security teams.

 We will explore the changing dynamics of cybersecurity responsibility within organizations. Highlight the need for a shared responsibility model, where employees at all levels actively participate in maintaining a strong security posture and how IT organisations can provide the best tools and support to maintain strong user awareness.

Focus Network in partnership with Lenovo invite you to join this exclusive lunch gathering of IT Security leaders where we will delve deeper into ways of:

  • Onboarding and offboarding – managing assets and data for employee change
  • Data security and theft – prioritizing data safety for zero trust
  • Beyond the OS – security and threat management outside the OS ie firmware, supply chain, physical (ports and device access)
  • Shadow IT – managing risk and compliance in distributed environment
