Shoring Up Security in a WFH World

The widespread decision corporations have made to allow employees to work from home is a great thing, but it also poses added vulnerabilities, including increased risk of browser attacks, unsecured wireless networks and inability to remediate remote security incidents. Attackers are highly innovative and can use the latest technology to their advantage, while security organizations are often hamstrung by the difficulty in adding a new solution to the network or making an important change, or slow to change procedures since change management is so difficult.

In Episode S2E8 we talk with Zeev Draer, vice president of corporate strategy for Niagara Networks, and we discuss some steps corporations can take to shore up their security posture in this new “work from home” world we find ourselves in.

Zeev describes for us some of the operational differences between attackers and defenders – and why is that important.
