Staying ahead of the curve – key considerations in managing an evolving computer and cyber risk landscape

19/05/2021 | Online Zoom Conferencing

In 2020, the working landscape changed significantly.  Working from home has become the new norm for millions of employees. As businesses look at the future, many are focusing on how office and home working can be adopted as new hybrid working practices.  With less time spent working in designated offices and premises, what should businesses be thinking about in terms of managing computer and cyber risks?  This webinar examines the evolving cyber risks landscape and changing behaviours as our reliance on technology accelerates and the lines between work and personal use blur further.
