About this episode

In our latest podcast host Dominic Laurie is joined by David Emm, Principal Security Researcher at Kaspersky Labs, Hans Allnutt, Partner at DAC Beachcroft, Raf Sanchez, International Breach Response Manager at Beazley and Kekst CNC partner Ben Curson, who share their take on the changing landscape of cyber security.

COVID-19 has displaced workforces and offices. The ever-changing environment, rife with fear, continues to create the ‘perfect storm’ for the cyber criminals poised to strike. In this episode our guests discuss the vulnerabilities that have been exposed by remote working, now many are operating without the supporting office infrastructure we are accustomed to. They examine the notion that crises must be dealt with in person, and how the status quo and our dispersed workforces can actually play into the successful management of a crisis, albeit remotely. They discuss why prevention is better than a cure, exploring why companies must seize this opportunity of unscheduled change to adapt working practices to improve their cyber security. Listen here to find out more, and why investing time and resources in staff training means they become the unsung heroes in the fight against cyber security issues.
