It has just been over a year since COVID-19 brought radical changes to working life. Remote working, once the exception for many organisations suddenly became the norm. This brought new challenges to cyber security and privacy but also benefits for productivity and work-life balance.

Organisations are now seeing the benefit of remote workforces with many planning hybrid workforces in the long term. With lockdown restrictions easing, we ask the question of “What has remote working taught us about people and security?”

In this session, we will be hearing from two academic projects from the UK’s leading research networks (SPRITE+ and RISCS) looking at the cyber security challenges that had arisen from COVID-19. 

This session will end with an industry panel where we will discuss the office of the future and what this means for your organisation.

The webinar will be hosted by Oz Alashe MBE (CEO, CybSafe) and Jamie Akhtar (CEO, Cybersmart)
