Webinar with senior Forrester analyst Paul McKay
IT security trends 2020 for Europe:
Home office, new threat patterns, CJEU judgment…
Wednesday, Sep 30, 2020 || 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM CEST
In a year like no other, Paul will outline how forward-thinking European firms are supporting work from home as well as responding to key challenges including new threat patterns. He will also advise on the impact of the recent judgements by the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) regarding Standard Contractual Clauses and the invalidation of the EU-US privacy shield.
Paul will highlight how the need to secure email – the lifeblood of any business – is putting increased pressure on IT Security Managers and CISOs, as the scope widens beyond securing simply their infrastructure, to cover entire business landscapes. Consequently, there is an imperative for CISOs to choose the right services in order to protect their business and its vital communications, and to do so before an attack.
Following the recent CJEU ruling declaring the Privacy Shield to be invalid, this webinar will also discuss the new due diligence requirements for US companies looking to do business with service providers in Europe. Corporations will also need to review and update their incident response strategies and carefully examine their supporting operational processes, as standard contractual clauses and binding corporate rules are at risk.
In the webinar, Paul will outline how this also impacts cloud solutions as well as on-premises infrastructure, and will provide examples of effective strategies and email security solutions available today. And he’ll touch on the ongoing Brexit saga, in terms of how the latest developments could impact on security requirements for companies doing cross-border business.
