To truly be resilient, today’s organizations must do more than maximize the power of their security stack, they must maximize the power of their security team, and of their entire workforce. Systems, services and training aren’t sufficient to keep pace. A mindset shift is required.

The healthcare industry’s Covid-19 cyber-response bears lessons for us all. Confronting massive spikes in telehealth use and WFH staff, providers saw an unprecedented share of caregiver-patient interactions shift from established, secure and HIPAA-compliant platforms to home computers, public networks and IoT devices. Meanwhile, the fast ramp-up of vital new medical equipment for coronavirus treatment expanded the attack surface. Learn how a critical industry adapted.

Businesses and organizations worldwide are weighing the opportunity presented by the fast-approaching 5G future, but they may not be thinking enough about its risks. The real 5G challenge is how we will secure what will almost certainly become the world’s most critical network and the new software and hardware use cases it will spawn. The scale of the exposure will be massive and the dispersal of responsibility vast.

Security requires awareness of all participants in the business ecosystem.
