Virtual Event: Threat Detection

Being proactive with your cyber defences and strategies in a COVID World

Tuesday, February 9th, 2021
(Start: 12.00pm ET / 9.00am PT)

Agenda Overview:

As many agencies and departments also adopt work-from-home policies in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, cybersecurity is a growing issue.  Cybercriminals are seeking to exploit coronavirus to target organizations and individuals.  In this critical time, business leaders have a heightened responsibility to set clear expectations about how their organizations are managing security risks in the new work environments, leveraging new policies and technologies, and empowering their employees. 

Public Sector Network’s Advanced Threat Detection Virtual Event will give attendees a better understanding of the current landscape and how to develop the best defence strategy, implementation, and management plan.
