Shellcon.io - Keep Your Home Office Secure
Event date 10 October 2020
Many of us are working from home these days. It is possible that we will continue working from home – at least part time – even after the pandemic becomes a thing of the past. This begs the question of how we, as employees, and our organizations, are protecting our information assets in the COVID-19 world. Are those assets just as protected in the home office as they are when in an office building? The speaker will explore this question from the perspective of an information security professional that has worked from home full time for 5 years – well before COVID-19. The goal is to provide simple tips to remain secure while at home, and also tips related to keeping productivity high without going stir-crazy.
