AAFCPAs’ Cyber Security Pros on Agenda at Strength Matters Conference

AAFCPAs’ IT Security Professionals Alex Santiago and Vassilis Kontoglis will share advice on overcoming cyber security challenges of a remote workforce at the Strength Matters Financial Management Conference, September 6-9 in New Orleans.

The COVID Pandemic challenged businesses to think about operations in a new way, and in many cases, IT teams were required to support employees for the first time ever that were never intended or conceived to be remote. Now, remote capabilities are the expectation rather than an exception. In this presentation, Alex and Vassilis will provide key considerations and best practice recommendations to ensure attendees may be confident they are maintaining secure network access.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the current threat landscape
  • Learn how your remote workforce may present new security concerns
  • Understand strategies to mitigate risks
