Protecting the employee by protecting the workspace: The Citrix view on Zero-Trust.

Employees are our most important asset, so protecting them and their work interests should be our most important mission. You can easily recognize organizations that truly “get it.” They’re the ones shifting security efforts from a primary focus on protecting underlying technologies to the more business-relevant position of protecting the value delivered by employees.

Working to Protect Local Government from the Increasing Range of Cyber Threat Vectors
Resilience levels among local authorities have been put to the test during lockdown with councils most likely to be targeted by ransomware attacks according to leading industry surveys. With the move to remote working - and a commensurate shift to cloud-based platforms - this session explores how Scottish councils are dealing with cyber harm on their networks.
1:35 PM - 1:55 PM
Why cyber resilience is a team effort

Without the right people, process, technology and plans in place, future security attacks will be successful.  The pandemic has changed the way we all think and work, but we’ve learned a lot.  Not least, the human side of security.  This session explores the key cyber resilience areas including human security potentially being the weakest link.
