NEW YORK - Dec. 2, 2020 - PRLog -- According to the Information Security Forum (ISF), the fallout from COVID-19 has presented a complex set of interrelated factors, causing a ripple effect that impacts the global economy, every geographic region and all industry sectors. As organizations adjust to a new operating environment, the security leader's role in normal business operations remains vital.

Organizations need to manage risks in ways beyond those traditionally handled by the information security function, since new attacks will impact both business reputation and shareholder value. As threats increase on a global scale, a systematic and all-embracing commitment is required to ensure that practical plans are in place to deal with major changes the future could bring. Employees at all levels of the organization need to be involved, including board members and managers in non-technical roles.

During this webcast, Steve Durbin, Managing Director of the ISF, will discuss the rapidly changing threat landscape, identify the key cyber challenges for 2021 and suggest ways of managing the associated risks. The top global security threats that businesses will face in 2021 include:

• Cybercrime: Malware, ID Theft, Ransomware and Network Attacks
• Insider Threats are Real
• The Digital Generation Becomes the Scammer's Dream
• Edge Computing Pushes Security to the Brink
• Rushed Digital Transformations Destroy Trust
