As businesses allow entire employee populations to work from anywhere, it has opened up new risks and dramatically increased the attack surface literally overnight.  What previously took place in the seemingly safe confines of corporate offices, conference rooms and boardrooms, has now been exposed to the world in a completely new way. Not only are employees connecting in and accessing data on corporate networks, they are exposing confidential information over digital collaboration tools that contain video and audio through normal person-to-person communications. Imagine an executive meeting broadcast on the evening world news. In our presentation, we will discuss these new risks and the misconceptions around the security and privacy of digital collaboration, while offering insight into the current threat landscape.
