Just about every corner of the federal government and just about every major commercial enterprise has been leveraging technologies to allow employees to work from home, at least a bit. But work from home efforts changed dramatically as the nation ramped up emergency measures in response to the ongoing pandemic. Even elements of the federal government with a history of resisting technology based change, like the Supreme Court, have now implemented new measures to enable work from home. Today, in fact, the Supreme Court is hearing historic oral arguments via telecon. This is not quite zoom, but is a huge step for the court. And there have been justices seen on Zoom! See:
This is one for the history books. One of the biggest changes in Supreme Court history. Turns out you don't need a new Amendment or Constitutional Convention to make common sense changes. Just an attitude adjustment. Sorry it took #covid19 #coronavirus to make this happen. https://t.co/nrmFJM4Omh

This is clear evidence that times are changing.
The bad news is that the hackers, criminals and hostile nation’s are also changing. They are pivoting to seek to exploit employees who are working from home. There are ways we can make things much harder for attackers while improving quality of service.
Join us 13 May 2020 at 2pm Eastern as we examine one of the most cost effective and impactful things you can do to mitigate risks to your work from home force as well as your enterprise, the Software Defined Perimeter (SDP). This online panel, sponsored by Carahsoft, will dive deep into topics enterprise architects can immediately apply to reduce risk.
Join OPSWAT, Bob Flores, former CTO of the CIA, and Bob Gourley, former CTO of the DIA, for a webinar to explore industry best practices for SDP. They will discuss some of the biggest challenges they see in reducing risk while enabling a remote workforce. This includes the challenges of enforcing security standards on endpoints that may or may not be under agency control.
You will discover:
- Insights you can immediately utilize within your enterprise to reduce risk
- Best practices in reducing threats of malware on endpoints and risk while teleworking
- Ways to better enforce internal security standards to meet security requirements
- How OPSWAT can rapidly scale and help meet current requirements and policies, including CDM
- The fundamental difference between Software Defined Perimeters (SDP) and older approaches like VPNs
