IT Risk and Resilience - Cybersecurity Response to COVID-19 - IEEE Computer Society Chapter Meeting

Share

Meeting of Washington/Northern Virginia Chapter of IEEE Computer Society 


The rapid and worldwide spread of the coronavirus and its illness known as COVID-19 has made huge impact on almost everything has taken us all by surprise. We all are now experiencing a major unprecedented and unexpected global public health crisis. This pandemic has also triggered huge social upheavals, disrupted almost every industry, and impacted the life and work of everyone in almost every country. Businesses and educational institutions are closed, many employees are forced to work from their homes, supply chains have been disturbed, people are being required to self-isolate, and most travel, in-person meetings, and conventions have been banned. These disruptions will continue for months, and the resulting economic, business, and social impact will last for years.  This talk highlights the National Institute of Standards (NIST) Cybersecurity Framework (CSF) as an operational model for managing the COVID-19 disruption to information technology (IT) services.
