About this webinar:

The pandemic has left a lasting legacy of permanent change in our behaviours both as employees and consumers. Firms as diverse as Google and Schroders – a giant of the investment sector – have stated the employees need never return to the office. The switch to online shopping has accelerated dramatically – with Amazon recording a 40% leap in its already gigantic sales, and a staggering quarterly profit of $5.2bn.

The adoption of remote working at scale has driven reviews of existing on-premise technology, and given enterprises urgent reasons to shift to cloud based solutions – with many tech vendors benefiting. It also means that security operations have been disrupted, presenting a range of challenges for teams working with a hotch-potch of different tools – and a sharp cultural change for IT leaders in managing their teams.

Highly organised cybercriminal gangs are exploiting the disruption. In this computing web seminar, our expert panel will discuss the permanent changes we now face, the challenges they place on the enterprise – both in terms of technology and people-management, and we will discuss how enterprises can effectively plan for the post-pandemic world.

Excessive complexity in toolsets and misalignment across teams are now presenting increased risks, mandating an ‘intrinsic’ approach to security, which is built in with tools, people and processes, unified and context-centric. Join us live and learn how to plan security in our vastly altered post-pandemic world.
