Cybersecurity and the Remote Workforce – How Can Gov Stay Secure?

Tuesday, Aug. 11 | 2 p.m. ET / 11 a.m. PT

The shift to remote work dramatically transformed cybersecurity practices for governments across the country. The agency leading the cyber strategy for the federal government, the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), warned in April that bad actors could scam agencies with false COVID-19 information. According to CISA, cybercriminals also sought gaps in agencies’ teleworking software and other digital tools.
