Securing the New 'Branch Office'Derek Manky of FortiGuard Labs on Defending Against High-End Social Engineering
The "remote workforce" of 2020 is gone. Now we're talking about the new, permanent "branch office" - and it comes with its own unique set of cybersecurity concerns, says Derek Manky of FortiGuard Labs. He discusses new social engineering trends and how to respond.
"This is a large, distributed enterprise with branch offices, and it's here to stay," says Manky, Chief, Security Insights & Global Threat Alliances at Fortinet's FortiGuard Labs. "We need to get [cybersecurity] right."
In an interview with Information Security Media Group, Manky discusses:
- Latest research into threat trends;
- The latest, high-end forms of social engineering;
- How to best defend the new branch offices.
