Covid WFH Impact on Individuals and Companies Cybersecurity

Speaker: Dr. Clay Posey Bio: Dr. Clay Posey is an Associate Professor of Management at the University of Central Florida and holds secondary joint appointments with the Cybersecurity and Privacy Faculty Cluster and the Institute for Simulation & Training. His research has been published in numerous academic journals and presented at various national and international conferences. His efforts emphasize the human element in cybersecurity, especially as it relates to organizational cyber efforts. For example, his research largely focuses on the positive (e.g., compliance, protection-motivated behaviors) and negative (e.g., computer abuse, insider threat) information-security related behaviors of organizational insiders. Dr. Posey is also co-founder of and Chief Research Scientist at Beyond Layer Seven, LLC. About the event: The COVID-19 pandemic has adversely affected individuals’ and organizations’ ability to function worldwide. As employees have transitioned to home-based environments, we are finding that many of them and their organizations were not well prepared to handle the unique issues that accompany these changes. In our NSF RAPID-funded research, we examine temporary work-from-home (TWFH) employees—employees who make an unexpected shift to remote work—and their adjustments to the new environmental conditions. Among these adjustments are new and/or evolving cybersecurity demands with which they are expected to comply. While necessary, such demands can add to the other stressors experienced by some TWFH employees as they work away from their traditional office settings. To examine this issue, we conducted interviews with TWFH employees about differences between working from home and working from their typical environment prior to the pandemic as well as their experiences with following their organizations’ cybersecurity policies while working remotely. We then assessed the fluctuations in these daily experiences, stressors, and demands among hundreds of TWFH employees. Our presentation will highlight some of the environmental and employee factors we uncovered that lead to TWFH employees’ adherence to organizational cybersecurity demands during these unique times. ---- Interested in learning more about CSNP?

Hacking Health: Securing Medical IoT

Online event

Title: Hacking Health - Importance of Medical Device Security Agenda: 7:30PM - 7:40PM: Introduction 7:40PM - 8:10PM: Speaker presentation 8:10PM - 8:25PM: Q/A and networking 8:25PM - 8:30PM: Closing remarks Abstract: As hospitals and medical equipment grow more networked globally, the importance of risk management for security vulnerabilities has never been greater. There are many benefits to medical devices expanding connectivity, but there are security and safety risks that come along with this. Ransomware and other types of attacks on medical devices can jeopardize patient safety, which is why it is imperative to consider preventative measures. Various security testing methods can be considered when scaling up detection and incident response for networked medical devices. Medical device security is a matter of life and death, and as security professionals we choose life! Speaker: Logan Reyes, CSNP New Jersey Chapter Lead Speaker Bio: Logan Reyes is an Information Technology student specializing in Network and Information Security at the New Jersey Institute of Technology. Logan works as a Medical Device Cyber Security Intern at Sterling Medical Devices, and volunteers as the New Jersey Chapter Lead at CSNP. ----- Interested in learning more about CSNP?
