Citrin Cooperman Technology, Risk Advisory, and Cybersecurity Practice professionals Kevin Ricci and Michael Camacho will be participating in a webinar discussion, "Cybersecurity Disruptors in the COVID Era," hosted by the Construction Financial Management Association (CFMA) New York City Chapter. 

A business’ ability to defend itself against the onslaught of cybersecurity risks is a daunting challenge in the best of times, but the ongoing pandemic has made this situation exponentially worse. A perfect storm has arrived, combining a lack of funds needed for security expenditures with some employees having to work from vulnerable home environments, all while cyber criminals ratchet up their activity, looking to sow profit from the chaos.

It is more important than ever to make sure you understand the risks to your organization and are informed about cybersecurity best practices and risk-mitigation strategies to safeguard your company from suffering an attack. Are you doing everything you can to secure your company’s IT environment and avoid becoming the next security breach headline because your data was compromised?

Participants will leave with key takeaways, including:

  • Understanding the emerging trends in the world of cybersecurity
  • Avoiding the security pitfalls of a remote workforce
  • Developing an incident response plan
  • The importance of penetration testing and vulnerability management
  • Detecting and avoiding spear phishing attacks, the cause of over 90% of data breaches
  • Strategizing on how to effectively provide security awareness training to your employees
  • Third-party risk management
  • Data security and privacy regulatory compliance
