Cybersecurity has become one of the leading global considerations of the COVID-19 crisis following the mass migration to remote work. As our reliance on technology will necessarily increase in order to both manage and move out of this crisis, it will inevitably be accompanied by cyber insecurity and tradeoffs with our digital privacy. This emerging environment requires an understanding of cybersecurity at the individual level and how that interacts with the global forces at play.
To examine this critical theme, Concentric Advisors CEO Mike LeFever hosted a panel discussion with Michael Rogers, former Director of the NSA and Commander of US Cyber Command, and Frances Dewing, CEO of Rubica and an expert on personal cybersecurity.
