With so many changes to the way businesses operate as a result of the ongoing 2020 pandemic, organisations have faced the unprecedented challenge of protecting assets both in the workplace and remotely.
The first SC Digital Congress took place recently, with a full day of talks, discussions and panels about understanding and managing cyber risk for businesses. Directed at CISOs, the event is the first in their Cyber Risk and Resilience series, aimed at delivering critical content to help businesses assess, improve and test their cyber security protocols.
BRIM’s founder, Mandy Haeburn-Little, was a guest on a discussion panel entitled ‘A Review of 2020: What were the biggest attacks, changes in cybersecurity, how did we deal with them and how does it prepare us for the future?’ Mandy was joined by Paul Harragan, Director in Ernst & Young’s Transactions Strategy & Transactions team; Mal Smyth, Global Head of Cyber Governance, Risk and Control at Vodafone; and Sharon Barber, Chief Security Officer for Lloyds Banking Group.
The panel discussed the many changes that have arisen in the cyber security realm for businesses since the start of 2020, with talking points including:
How have attacks changed with a remote workforce?
Is the new hybrid remote and office working environment the biggest cyber security risk to face CISOs and IT security professionals?
How have you hardened your colleague’s home environment?
Was the rush to cloud migration worth it?
The next SC Digital Congress event is scheduled to take place in February 2021, on the topic of protecting against cyber attacks. For more information about this and other upcoming events, visit the SC Digital website.
