HOPE 2020 (2020): "Securing a Remote Workforce in the Face of COVID-19 and Planning for the Future" (Download)
Friday, July 31, 2020: 1100. As the world quickly adapted to the move to a remote workforce, it became clear which companies had prepared proper DR plans, and which were making quick decisions. We have seen many examples where these quick decisions sacrificed security for functionality. Christopher will discuss the obstacles that companies have faced, the ways they can be overcome, and the lingering threats that exist. Visual and practical representations will be included, using data from almost 4000 endpoints in three countries to show what can happen when security is overlooked. Special attention will be paid to RDP, which, while it was on a steady decline in use, has now seen a sharp increase (data from Shodan).
