The Evolution of Wi-Fi
Once a technological marvel, the idea of a wireless connection to the Internet has become so engrained in the digital world that it is hard to fathom a time when that was not the case. But just because Wi-Fi has gone mainstream does not mean it is static. In this episode of the Cyber Pros Exchange series, security experts Dustin Brewer and Frank Downs consider the history of Wi-Fi, how it reached its position today and why it’s so important that it be secured properly.
Why You Need a Proactive Approach to Risk
The wave of remote working arrangements implemented as a response to the COVID-19 pandemic has introduced new and often unpredictable IT vulnerabilities. This has made it all the more important to identify Key Risk Indicators, or KRIs, as a method of providing a warning before risk can develop any further. In this episode of the ISACA Podcast, sponsored by Galvanize, Greg Slayton discusses ways that the pandemic has stretched technology’s limits and how organizations can use KRIs to restore proper risk management.
Engineering an Effective Privacy Game Plan
Putting effective privacy measures into practice can be a difficult task for organizations that lack a comprehensive, well-documented privacy strategy. Without one, enterprises may be exposing customer data to vulnerabilities, and could find themselves at risk of noncompliance with privacy regulations. In this episode of the podcast, Tim Clements, a featured speaker at EuroCACS 2020, explains why every organization should be creating and implementing a privacy strategy, what is at risk if one does not exist and how to get started with creating one. Clements will host the EuroCACS session “Privacy Strategy and Roadmap—Do You Have One, and Is It Aligned With Your Business Strategy?” with Clara Kromann from Pandora on 28 October 2020.
Finding the Human Factor in Work From Home
Once considered a privilege, remote work has become a necessity resulting from the public health risk posed by COVID-19. Telecommunication technologies such as video conferencing are core tools in the adoption of remote work, but virtual communication lacks the depth of in-person professional connections. In this episode of the ISACA Podcast, Vasant Raval and Edward Morse discuss how to make working from home productive, secure and personally fulfilling.
Breaking Down Blockchain
At its core, blockchain functions to maintain the integrity of data and systems. But how does it compare to other databases and when should it be used? In this episode of the ISACA podcast, cybersecurity experts Dustin Brewer and Frank Downs define blockchain, explain how it relates to cryptocurrency and the cloud, and discuss applications where it may prove useful.
The Road to Achieving Privacy by Design
Most organizations would agree that privacy by design is fundamental to growing a successful business and building customer trust. Yet putting this ideal into practice can often prove challenging. In this episode of the podcast, ISACA Journal columnist Steven Ross elaborates on his article “Privacy by Implementation and Execution” and explores some of the obstacles of implementing privacy by design.
