On July 7, 2020, Avi Gesser and Mengyi Xu from Debevoise’s Data Strategy & Security Group, along with their special guests, Luke Tenery and Joe Shepley of Ankura, had a insightful discussion on how companies can identify and reduce the risks associated with employee credential security, including:

  • Making sure that furloughed and departing employees do not have access to confidential materials
  • Reducing risks that compromised non-work credentials can be used to access the company network
  • Securing confidential materials in cloud-based storage and collaboration tools, as well as employees’ personal devices
