Volume 5: Continuing Issues Amid an Extended COVID-19 Lockdown

Are You Prepared for the Exponential Increase in Threat Velocity with 5G and Connected Devices?

A hybrid workforce, heightened insider risk, 5G concerns over the expanded attack surface – these are the “more” that people reference when they talk about “doing more with less” in 2021. How do security leaders prioritize budget allocations for these concerns? That is among the questions debated by this CEO/CISO panel.

Outline of This Episode

In the latest Cybersecurity Leadership panel discussion hosted by ISMG and CyberTheory, these CEOs and CISOs discuss:

  • What cyber resilience means for today’s hybrid workforce;
  • How to detect and defend heightened insider risks;
  • Endpoint security, third-party risk and how to prioritize spending for new security controls to help manage it all.
