Remote working & The Pandemic-Cybersecurity in the
New Normal

The COVID-19 pandemic has imposed lifestyle changes impacting both our personal and work lives. Millions of employees around the world are now working remotely from their homes. Corporate digital assets risk a higher degree of exposure with millions logging onto the workplace from both insecure devices and mediums. The role of the infosec manager has become far more complex. Constant training and awareness programs and monitoring of employee digital behavior would prove to be crucial in safeguarding corporate information assets from malicious hackers who continue to operate as they always did in their safe and anonymous environs probably also from their homes.

Global- General Background Screening Accreditation

The session will provide an overview of the upcoming release of our first expansion to the Accreditation program. The new Standard is designed to address screening outside of the US and will follow much the same process as our existing policies and procedures. Accreditation is becoming a base requirement in many RFPs and demonstrates an organization’s commitment to professionalism, continuous improvement, business standards and compliance. This program has been in development for over three years and we expect to have it available for beta testing in early 2021.
