About the Webinar

In the wake of COVID-19, the percentage of full-time employees working permanently from home will expand 733% over pre-pandemic levels. Cybercriminals are shifting their tactics accordingly, targeting often less-than-secure remote worksites to gain quick access to corporate systems. To protect themselves, organizations must squarely address the human element of cyber risk. Tom Finan of Willis Towers Watson will discuss how CISOs and HR leaders can collaborate to address four key aspects of employee experience that are the foundation of more effective cyber risk cultures. In so doing, they can help ensure their organizations not only survive a cyber incident but also thrive in its aftermath.
