The Future of Working-From-Anywhere

 The Future of Working-From-Anywhere 

 Building trust and security in the redefined enterprise 
 08:40 - 10:30 GMT 
 Wednesday 18 Nov 2020 
 Virtual Event - Taking Place on Zoom 

Working life has changed dramatically in the course of a year. For some companies it took just days to implement remote working at scale.

But what comes next?

With blended working models emerging, what actions do IT leaders take now to support the longer term changes initiated by COVID-19? We look at some of the key shifts, including:

  • How mass remote access has profoundly altered the information security context
  • Productivity and collaboration challenges within hybrid working environments
  • The network and cloud initiatives that will drive recovery and opportunity
  • How remote working is driving a new set of business and IT priorities
Look ahead and build on the lessons from a turbulent year. Join senior IT and security leaders to determine which actions will lead the transition to secure and flexible working environments.
