Smart network security involves a mix of hardware and software solutions designed to safeguard your data. But there’s another key security factor that’s just as vital, and it’s one that’s frequently neglected by technologists: the human element. Understanding the human risk factor and the role it plays in creating network vulnerabilities is vital to ensuring that your systems and your data are safely protected.
And it’s never been more important for state and local tech leaders to get it right. The shutdowns and economic turmoil of the coronavirus pandemic have created a new world that’s ripe for hackers and scammers. Ransomware and malware attacks are up, and users working from home are more susceptible to phishing attempts and other attempts to gain access to your network. If you’re not focusing on the human element, you’re ignoring a crucial part of your overall security program.
For a deep dive into the role of human risk, join Government Technology on June 12, at 12 p.m. Eastern / 9 a.m. Pacific. In this one-hour webinar, a panel of experts and thought leaders will discuss important topics including:
- Why your users are your most important line of defense, and how you can build and empower your “human firewall”
- How Covid-19 has reshaped the threat landscape, and how that will be affected by the economic crisis
- What you can do now to make your organization a hard target for bad actors
- How security awareness training can enable your employees to make smarter security decisions every day
