About this event:

Covid-19 has plummeted organisations into a world of the unknown. Making the rapid change to remote working of course comes with huge risk factors. Whilst human error has always been one of the biggest risk factors for cybersecurity, suddenly this threat has multiplied. IT teams are finding themselves having to secure an influx of end-points, support their infrastructure, and ensure that all employees are aware of possible threats. With many organisations dependent on remote working, the last thing you and your team need is an attack.

In this episode of Deskflix experts will cover the state of play with cybersecurity, new challenges, and best practices and technology for modern risk management.
