A dialogue on the “new normal” in IT risk management

IT risk management has been forever changed by COVID-19.  From the sudden and exponential growth of the remote workforce to the increase in phishing and ransomware attacks that exploit organizations in flux, the pandemic is a before-and-after milestone that is creating new challenges and requiring new strategies for effectively managing cyber risk.

During this on-demand event, John Nicely, Principal PM Manager, Microsoft, Hugh Barrett, Telos VP of technical solutions, Telos, and Steve Horvath, Telos VP of strategy and cloud discuss the many changes to IT risk management caused or accelerated by the COVID-19 pandemic and what to expect going forward. You’ll learn about:

  • New, evolving risks as a result of an almost entirely mobile workforce
  • Prioritization of risks as IT struggles to deploy new technologies in response to emerging demands
  • What strategies can be used to help mitigate those risks

Why you should watch:

In a world where we are more connected than ever before, COVID-19 has forced a new mindset for risk and compliance teams, as well as IT staff that understand the need to conduct business in geographically dispersed localities for significant durations.

These new business drivers and the accompanying risk acceptance and mitigations will mean the difference between organizations that can evolve and succeed and those that won’t. Watch the presentation for deeper insights into the current situation and how to prepare for the future.
