(Fully Booked) BDO Webinar: Continuous Monitoring and Managed Services – Remote Working during COVID 19

Date: 05 May 2020
Time: 15:30 - 16:30


  • Summary

On 31 March 2020, one of the international hotel giant confirmed a second data breach in three years ie 5.2 million of personal data are breached caused by cybersecurity attack. Whilst more and more people get familiar to the tips for better cybersecurity, however, number of cybersecurity attacks are not stopped even though in the time of COVID 19.

Whilst cyber-attacks cannot be totally prevented and will continue to occur with an increasing threat landscape. Organisations need to invest in a cybersecurity security operations center (CSOC) in order to avoid heavy losses arising due to cyber incidents. An effective SOC needs to be developed carefully to prevent advanced threats and to have a bird's eye view of the technological infrastructure.

The challenges faced by corporations and their management are becoming more challenging. Success corporations must be able to prevent, monitor and detect suspicious activities and stop cybersecurity attacks as early as possible.

In this webinar, we will share our knowledge on:

  • Need for continuous monitoring for IT security
  • End point detection, management and response
  • BYOD policies and remote working controls
  • How BDO's Cyber Security Operation Center can provide managed services

We hope that this webinar will help you to understand more about the CSOC as well as security controls.
