Many businesses and government agencies have been forced to rapidly deploy commercial web video conferencing systems to support both their remote employees as well as sensitive business collaborations during a time when travel is not possible. Low level attackers have had success disrupting or compromising many of the initial configurations and nation states are using more sophisticated methods to target government agencies, healthcare organizations and businesses.

During this SANS WhatWorks webcast, SANS Director of Emerging Security Trends John Pescatore will interview Amanda Schnetzer, Chief Operating Officer of Pointe Bello, a strategic intelligence consulting firm, to gain insight on their business need to securely collaborate across their remote workforce and with their clients, who are often targets of nation states.

Join John Pescatore and Amanda Schnetzer to hear details on the selection, deployment and experience using HighSides Secure Team Collaboration product. This webcast will contain a discussion of lessons learned and best practices and give you the opportunity to ask questions to gain a deeper insight into HighSides Secure Team Collaboration product.
