Mitigating remote-work risks and ensuring business continuity


It’s clear that organisations are adopting a more flexible approach to remote working. Much of this is driven from the learnings over lockdown. Due to changing employee expectations, many now value the benefits of flexible working arrangements. As a result, IT teams must consider the heightened security risks when running a hybrid remote / on premise workforce. This isn’t only in the short term, but for the foreseeable future. Join StorageCraft’s webcast on 5th August, at 6pm for a 1hr webinar. Co-hosted by SonicWall and StorageCraft, you’ll learn how to best mitigate the risks associated with remote work, and ensure business continuity into the future.
