About the topic
With a threat landscape that is in constant flux and with ever-increasing risks from both the physical and the digital world, we believe that access to expert-led, insight-rich and timely content is of maximum importance. This is the principle upon which we decided to launch our ‘Innovation & Insights Webinar Series’. Through these webinars, we will keep you updated about the latest cybersecurity threats and risks, as well as essential mitigation strategies.This webinar will tackle the cybersecurity perspective on one of the world’s most current and pressing challenges: COVID-19. In addition to the awful impact this coronavirus outbreak is having on the health and safety of countless people around the world and in addition to the economic turmoil it has precipitated, COVID-19 has also become a lever for gain that cybercriminals are exploiting ruthlessly. Join us on this webinar to learn the CSIS perspective on COVID-19 as a cybersecurity threat.
