Here’s what we discussed:

When laptops are rarely in the same building as IT, browsers and plug-ins won’t be consistently maintained, updated, or patched. Detect-and-respond strategies that rely on backhauling all traffic to a central choke point in the data center aren’t practical with a remote workforce. How are enterprises creating policies that follow users to wherever they log in without slowing performance to a crawl? In this session, we discussed ways companies with expanded remote workforces are meeting these challenges with new policies and tech.

Director, Sales Engineering – APAC at Menlo Security

Here is what we learned:

Andre Shori, Chief Information Security Officer APAC at Schneider Electric is attending because of interest in supply chain security and third-party risk management. When you grant access to anyone, be it third party or internal, you are incurring a risk. You must have a level of trust. You rely on the other party to be following cybersecurity best practices.

Edward Chen, Chief Information Officer for the Singapore Armed Forces is interested to see what the commercial industry can offer in terms of security and learn what can help them strengthen their own networks. The armed forces are currently going through cloud transformation journey which he feels that it’s a never-ending process. They have moved from a perimeter type cyber defense to a zero-trust architecture. Threats come from everywhere, including internally. They’ve put in place several detect and respond measures. They’ve also adopted proactive “hunting” measures.

Paul Loke in the Accountant General’s Office in Singapore says that with more people working from home, there is an increase in personal and third-party devices that need to be secured. He wonders how employees can be assured that they are able to work securely? User behavior creates potential risks. For example, emailing from a personal to a corporate device could introduce issues. Security is more complex because of these behaviors.
