Ondemand Webinar | Navigating the Security Maze of the Remote Worker with Splunk

With the outbreak of COVID-19, the demand for remote work has increased exponentially. Working from home presents a different set of cybersecurity challenges with most home offices having off-the-shelf routers with minimal security countermeasures.

The new remote work and remote learner environments provide attackers with a new entry point which they can exploit more easily than the well defended network used in the past. Leveraging malware posing as COVID-19 dashboards, targeted phishing attacks, and weaponized websites with malware embedded are some of the ways attackers are compromising remote workers' devices and spreading the malware over VPN connections. Data is being stolen, credit card and personal accounts are being compromised, and attackers are gaining footholds into an organization's network through a home worker's laptop or desktop.

Join us for an in-depth overview of the new attack surface of the remote worker. Learn how you can:

  • Increase your threat detection, investigation and response capabilities
  • Reduce your organization's exposure to risk
  • Address security challenges such as monitoring, investigation, automation and orchestration, advanced threats, insider threat detection, incident response, compliance and more
