IT security in a post-COVID world

For a long time, IT Security has been a secondary topic for a lot of companies. More often than not, it only came to mind after an actual data breach or security incident, and was often overlooked otherwise. Over the years, things like WannaCry/Petya or GDPR compliance helped raise awareness a little bit, but those soon faded out as well.

However, the new "Low Touch Economy" emerging as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic could provide the jolt that IT Security needed for a long time. With a lot more people working remotely, the need to secure devices (laptops, phones, etc.), communication channels, as well as on-prem & Cloud infrastructure is now higher than ever before.

The global pressure on innovation and developing new business models to adapt to these changes is high. This session aims to address some of the major shifts and impacts of remote work by providing some ways to balance innovation and IT Security, while also touching on some of the ever-growing gaps in security incident detection and response.
