Why are data breaches at an all time high despite businesses spending more on cybersecurity than ever before? It's because cybersecurity has always focused on securing devices and systems, but not our people. As a result of COVID-19, there is a new challenge: securing a more dispersed workforce. Such a state provides more opportunities for human error to cause a breach. But, when we think of solutions, how does machine learning play into all this? Find out in this session as Tessian's CEO and Co-Founder, Tim Sadler, discusses this paradigm of security as well as how you can protect your employees during a time of crisis.


SpeakerTim Sadler (Chief Executive Officer and co-founder @Tessian)

Tim and his co-founders started Tessian in 2013, after identifying a need for a cybersecurity solution that protects people from risks on email like data exfiltration, accidental data loss and phishing. Tim has since built the company to over 160 employees and raised over $60m from leading venture capital funds. Tim has previously been listed on the Forbes 30 Under 30 list in technology.
