About this webinar:
The mass shift to remote working is creating fresh opportunities for cyber-attackers.
A huge portion of the global population is now working from home, away from networks that are carefully managed and monitored by IT experts and using their home broadband connections instead.
The COVID-19 pandemic has caused ransomware and phishing attacks to skyrocket as cybercriminals look to exploit newly vulnerable defences.
It’s not just customers. Resellers – who have found themselves a prime target for cyberattacks in recent months - also need to cope with homeworking, and creating operational structures to protect themselves and their entire workforce.
With the severity of COVID-19’s impact varying massively across Europe, nations are reacting to the crisis in different ways, which in turn shapes how the continent’s thousands of Resellers are responding.
We are in unchartered territory, but the stakes for channel partners in protecting their teams and their customers has never been higher. What security advice should trusted advisors in the channel be giving their customers at this difficult time, and which security technologies should they be deploying as a matter of urgency?
This episode, part of the CRN and Channel Partner Insight DeskFlix series, will explore how Resellers in continental Europe are responding to the cybersecurity.
