Are You Serious? Now I Have to Worry About BYOD and IoT Threats?
We know it sucks, but BYOD and IoT are changing the way employees access your company's data. Next year more than 50% of the devices connecting to enterprise networks will be owned by employees. Within 3 years, IoT devices will have a significant presence in the enterprise. So why should you care about all these new devices showing up in your office? They carry all your company's critical data, and none of the security tools you have today can even see them. The security implications of this shift are huge, and already being felt.
In this webinar John Pescatore will examine how to apply the CIS Critical Controls in an BYOD and IoT world. John, together with Pwnie Express CEO Paul Paget, will explore how to gain visibility and control over all wired, wireless, bluetooth and cellular network devices in and around an enterprise.
