Security was cast in the spotlight as the COVID-19 outbreak forced us to reset how and where we work. In the scramble to find a comprehensive remote working arrangement during the pandemic, managing connectivity and cyber risk became critical.

Post-COVID-19, organisations need to navigate the IT implications for the phased approach to office-returning staff, while balancing the needs of remote and hybrid staff. In this ‘new normal’, cyber security remains more important than ever.

Join the live webinar discussion with our Security team as they address the key issues our customers have experienced and recommend a path forward. Topics our panellists will cover include:

  • Security considerations during the phased return to office.
  • Managing connectivity for remote, hybrid and office users, ensuring they are secure and stay connected
  • Ensuring organisations meet their governance, privacy and compliance requirements post COVID-19
