Business Continuity: Critical Areas of Focus for Designing a Teleworker Solution.

[Virtual Event]

When business continuity plans are put in place, they are usually a response to unplanned events. In addition to enabling workers during a challenging time, how do we manage, deploy, and secure a new model of remote access? We’ll provide answers about what works (and what does not) when deploying remote solutions for workers.

What participants can expect to gain: Candid and real-world perspectives on enabling a remote workforce.
