Covid19: Fix home working cyber security risks (13:00)
Remote working presents major cyber security challenges for businesses. Staff working from home won’t necessarily be cyber-savvy and domestic WiFi routers are notoriously insecure.
How do businesses protect against phishing attacks, document loss, perhaps even a company-wide data breach?
Home working isn’t going away and neither are the cyber-criminals.
On this webinar Jim Preen from Yudu Sentinel is joined by Scott Lever and Richard Stephenson who will analyse and offer advice on how to mitigate the cyber-security problems inherent in home working.
Scott is the founder of home cyber security company Zobi, was called on by the House of Commons to firefight their data breach in 2017 and recently helped insurance giant Direct Line get their staff remote working in just four days.
Richard Stephenson is the CEO of YUDU a company that is currently working successfully with thirty staff in thirty different locations. Richard has run public listed companies, mid-market private equity investments and tech start-ups. His professional skills include digital strategy, crisis management, risk and digital document publishing.
