The need for a Corporate Endpoint Security System

December 23, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

IEEE Okanagan Sub-Section Presents:

The need for a Corporate Endpoint Security System


Date:   Dec. 23rd, 2021

Time:  17:00 – 18:00 PDT

Location:   Online

Speaker:    Mr. Dennis Estacion



Information security is to protect information from unauthorized use, disruption or destruction. There are three categories of control used to secure information: management, physical and operational security. Endpoint Security is the practice of securing endpoints or entry points of end-user devices, and falls under this operational security category, being one of the security topologies applied to a subset of systems like desktops, laptops or other mobile devices.

The four common attack vectors of endpoint security are shadow IoT devices, BYOD/mobile devices, insider threat and insecure applications. Some consequences of endpoint security failure are theft and sale of the customer and member list to competitors, payroll data leaked to employees, private information of customers or employees leaked, and your data encrypted and held for ransom. Any of the resulting financial, regulatory and reputational impacts could undermine a company’s viability. Endpoint security is no longer optional for any size of the enterprise.

This event will be held online. IEEE Members and non members welcome.
