Traditional web security methods, including firewalls, web proxies, and unified threat management systems can be expensive to acquire, operate and maintain, and often don’t work when users are off the enterprise network. In the age of remote working, a new approach to securing your organisation against malicious and inappropriate web activity is required.
This modernisation must extend to the way we train employees to be vigilant against cyber security attacks too. As the complexity and frequency of nefarious phishing and social engineering activity grows each year, low quality and irregular security training falls increasingly short. Issues such as shadow IT further complicate the cyber landscape.
This webinar will discuss how organisations can revamp their approach to web security and cyber security training, and explore Computing’s dedicated research into the external threats faced by organisations today, the internal issues that compound them, and the effectiveness of security solutions and training programs currently in place.
